Funding Opportunity: Detection of HIV for Self-Testing (R61/R33)

August 30, 2017

Announcement (FOA) Number PAR-17-471 

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support bi-phasic developmental, discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven research focused on innovative strategies to detect HIV either within the first two weeks of infection or to monitor viral rebound after stopping or developing resistance to antiretroviral therapy. Applications should propose simple dignostic tools that would be feasible for a self-testing platform to allow untrainded individuals to detect HIV. Interdisciplinary collaborations that include biomedical, physical, and behavioral sciences are highly incouraged.
