Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV and Viral Hepatitis Co-Infection (R01, R21)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is 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. This FOA is informed by priority areas in the 2011 HHS Action Plan, Combating the Silent Epidemic of Viral Hepatitis: Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis http://www.hhs.gov/ash/initiatives/hepatitis/index.html.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope,  PAR-14-254, which uses the exploratory/developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
