AIDS Research LRP

Program Purpose

The purpose of the AIDS Research LRP is to establish a program of educational loan repayment to attract additional health professionals into Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) research. The mission of the NIH AIDS Research Loan Repayment Program (AIDS-LRP) is to attract highly qualified physicians, nurses, and scientists to HIV/AIDS research by countering the growing economic disincentives to embark on biomedical research careers, using loan repayment as an incentive.

Program Announcement

In November 1988, Public Law (P.L.) 100-607 introduced Section 487A of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 USC 288-1), authorizing the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to establish the AIDS Research LRP.

Program Eligibility


AIDS Research

Research that includes studies of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the pathophysiology of HIV infection, the development of models of HIV infection and its sequelae, cofactors predisposing to HIV infection and AIDS, or its sequelae, and the development of vaccines and therapeutics.
