NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Novel Lentiviral Models of HIV Neuropathogenesis (R01 and R21)

Funding Contact(s): May Wong, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Neural Environment

Brief Description:

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) invite research grant applications aimed at developing and or refinement of animal or ex vivo cell culture model systems for study of the neurologic complications of AIDS, with or without a history of drug or alcohol use. Recent advances in the development of the SIV model system highlight the power of animal model systems for study of the mechanisms underlying the pathology associated with lentiviral infection in the nervous system. These models will be key for developing therapeutic approaches for the treatment of patients suffering from NeuroAIDS and for understanding the basic biology of infection with HIV/AIDS.
