Leveraging Big Data Science to Elucidate the Mechanisms of HIV Activity and Interaction with Substance Use Disorder (R01, R21 - Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research using data science and computational approaches to generate new insights into mechanisms and consequences of the interaction of HIV and addictive drugs. The development and application of novel computational, bioinformatic, statistical, and analytical approaches to mine big data sets will advance knowledge of the effects of addictive drugs on viral activity, latency, and disease progression, as well as new aspects of addiction biology.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope, RFA-DA-24-009, which uses the R21 grant mechanism.
