Mission. The Brown University Alcohol Research Center on HIV (ARCH) supports scientific innovations for addressing alcohol misuse in HIV prevention and care. Our goal is to test and move towards implementation of alcohol misuse interventions that have substantial population reach and improve prevention and treatment of HIV infections and reduction in alcohol-related comorbidities in people with HIV.
Purpose. The ARCH Pilot Grants Program is intended to: (1) support preliminary studies that test innovative research questions related to the ARCH’s mission, (2) foster collaborations among investigators affiliated with the Brown University ARCH and (3) contribute to investigator training in Alcohol/HIV research by providing investigators with expertise, guidance, and instrumental support from the ARCH research methods core. The Research Methods Core provides resources in technology-based intervention, implementation science, measurement, data harmonization, and statistical analysis.
