Comprehensive Resources for HIV Microbicides and Biomedical Prevention (CRMP)

This contract provides gap-filling support services for HIV prevention drug developers including academic (investigators), for-profit and not-for-profit small and large companies, and other product innovators (henceforth identified as Sponsors) for the development of HIV non-vaccine biomedical prevention (nBP) strategies and products. The types of nBPs supported include, but are not limited to, topical microbicides, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPT’s) for the purpose of preventing HIV transmission and acquisition in adolescents, women, men and transgender individuals. Sponsors seeking these services receive no funding from NIAID, but instead receive products or information generated by NIAID-funded contractors on their behalf. Data and reports are provided in a format that supports a regulatory filing. Additional details can be found here.

  • Who can use this resource?
    • Sponsors must have a defined need or gap that is delaying or blocking further advancement of their product to clinical testing and/or licensure.
    • Sponsors need preliminary data and/or regulatory agency input supporting a justification for the requested support.
