How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*This committee is composed of highly qualified scientists and public representatives with expertise related to the Institute’s AIDS research efforts. It provides a breadth and balance of specialized knowledge necessary to assess the long-range goals, program concepts, research opportunities, and direction of ongoing research and future plans, including HIV pathogenesis, epidemiology, vaccine, prevention and treatment research.
How is membership balanced?*The AIDS Research Advisory Committee, NIAID consists of 13 appointed members who are knowledgeable of the issues related to HIV infection and its treatment, (including clinical drug development), HIV vaccine and prevention research, as well as basic research. Some committee members also have experience/expertise in international HIV research, which is critical given the global nature of NIAID’s research agenda. Community/public representatives are also on the committee.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee met three times during this reporting period and provided valuable advice to the Division of AIDS (DAIDS), evaluating current activities and reviewing plans for future research projects. The committee also reviewed and approved numerous concepts for new initiatives proposed by DAIDS staff.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This committee is composed of recognized experts in biomedical and/or behavioral research who represent the forefront of research and technical knowledge and public member(s) representing those with HIV infection and/or AIDS. Their recommendations cannot be obtained from other sources because the complex nature of research requires a specialized balance and breadth of objective expertise not otherwise available.
