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