Immunopathogenesis of HIV/AIDS-related Oral Manifestations and Host Immunity (R01 and R21)

The NIH NIDCR has released two funding announcements for immunopathogenesis of HIV/AIDS-related Oral Manifestations and Host Immunity.

Information about the R01Grant
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the NIDCR encourages R01 research projects that propose studies to translate new scientific insights about HIV infection, oral pathogen co-infections (viruses, bacteria and fungi) and AIDS-related oral opportunistic infections (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) into better understanding of the immunopathogenesis of these infectious agents to guide translational research focused on the development of novel, oral mucosal prophylactic HIV vaccines as well as therapeutic strategies against HIV, oral co-infections and oral opportunistic infections. December 7, 2011, is the open date to submit applications. Visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-334.html for more information.

Information about the R21Grant
This FOA issued by the NIDCR encourages Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant applications that propose studies to translate new scientific insights about HIV infection, oral pathogen co-infections (viruses, bacteria and fungi) and AIDS-related oral opportunistic infections (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) into better understanding of the immunopathogenesis of these infectious agents to guide translational research focused on the development of novel, oral mucosal prophylactic HIV vaccines as well as therapeutic strategies against HIV, oral co-infections and oral opportunistic infections. The R21 mechanism intends to support early stages of high risk-high impact research that may lead to breaking new ground or extending previous discoveries. December 7, 2011, is the open date to submit applications. Visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-333.html for more information.
