NINDS encourages applications for research on HIV infection of the central nervous system (CNS). This announcement is made together with 3 other NIH components.
This initiative supports research focused on defining the pathogenic mechanisms involved in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) and identifying therapeutic strategies to treat and prevent the neurobehavioral and neurological effects of HIV-1 on the CNS. Applications ranging from basic research to clinical diagnosis and treatment are of interest. Multidisciplinary research teams and collaborative alliances are encouraged.
