Harnessing Big Data to Halt HIV

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages applications that will transform understanding of HIV transmission, the HIV care continuum, and HIV comorbidities using Big Data Science (BDS). NIH is interested in promoting and applying Big Data Science technologies, computing, informatics, and analytics to address gaps in our understanding of HIV transmission risks, social networks, and the HIV treatment continuum including comorbidities such as cancer.

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.

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV/AIDS and Aging

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.

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV and Viral Hepatitis Co-Infection

The purpose of these two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) are to fill gaps in our understanding of a) the pathogenic interactions between HIV and hepatitis viruses, b) co-morbidities associated with HIV/hepatitis virus co-infection, and c) the effectiveness of interferon-free direct-acting antiviral drug regimens to treat HIV/HCV co-infection.

Research on Non-AIDS-defining or AIDS-defining Cancers

The purpose of this initiative is to continue advancing our understanding of the risks, development, progression, diagnosis, and treatment of malignancies observed in individuals with an underlying human immunodeficiency (HIV) infection or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

(AIDS), particularly the non-AIDS defining malignancies which are now a leading cause of death in HIV-infected individuals.  This FOA encourages research efforts that will (i) identify specific contributions resulting from HIV infection and its potential interaction with other pathogens for the development and pathogenesis of these cancers and (ii) provide information on the clinical outcomes of such cancers in the HIV-infected population. Ultimately, such efforts could inform screening approaches and therapies targeted to the HIV-infected population.
