Research on Malignancies in the Context of HIV/AIDS (R01)

The intent of this initiative is to solicit applications to advance our understanding of the risks, development, progression, diagnosis, and treatment of malignancies observed in individuals with an underlying HIV infection or AIDS. This FOA encourages research efforts that will (i) provide information on the clinical outcomes of such cancers in the HIV-infected population and (ii) identify specific contributions resulting from HIV infection and its potential interaction with other pathogens for the development and pathogenesis of these cancers. Ultimately, such efforts could inform screening approaches and therapies targeted to the HIV-infected population.

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV/AIDS and Aging (R03)

The intent of this initiative is to solicit applications to study HIV infection, HIV-associated conditions including cancer, HIV treatment, and/or biobehavioral or social factors associated with HIV/AIDS in the context of aging and/or in older adults. Research approaches of interest include clinical translational, observational, and intervention studies in domestic and international settings.

Research on Malignancies in the Context of HIV/AIDS

The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate research that will improve our understanding of molecular underpinnings in the development and progression of cancer in the context of HIV infection and AIDS.

Biomarkers of Infection-Associated Cancers

This initiative is designed to foster research to increase our knowledge of infectious agent-associated malignancies and identify those who are at increased risk of developing cancer among infected individuals and to detect early stage cancers in this population. Research projects proposed in the applications may involve a number of infectious agents showing associations with cancer. Noteworthy viral agents of interest to this program are human papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis B and C viruses, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and Simian Virus 40. Furthermore, an escalating prevalence of early cervical, lung, and colon cancers has emerged among HIV patients.

Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs)

The CFAR program provides administrative and shared research support to synergistically enhance and coordinate high quality AIDS research projects. CFARs accomplish this through core facilities that provide expertise, resources, and services not otherwise readily obtained through more traditional funding mechanisms. CFARs improve the institutions’ ability to carry multidisciplinary AIDS research and provide unique flexibility to respond to evolving scientific needs in AIDS research.
