NINDS invites grant applications to develop or refine novel lentiviral models of HIV neuropathogenesis. This announcement is made together with 3 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
Recent advances in the development of the simian immunodeficiency virus model system highlight the power of animal models for studying the mechanisms underlying the pathology associated with lentiviral infection in the nervous system. These models will be key for developing therapies to treat individuals with neuroAIDS and for understanding the basic biology of infection with HIV/AIDS.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. May Wong, program director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
