Multidisciplinary Approaches to HIV-Associated Comorbidities and Pr...

Basic research in the area of HIV-associated comorbidities has generally focused on the analysis of a pathway or a potential mechanism that contributes to the development of a single, specific HIV-associated comorbidity or end-organ disease. However, evidence indicates that there could be shared biological mechanisms that underlie the development of certain comorbidities, especially in the context of HIV infection. Targeting these mechanisms may not only impact HIV-associated comorbidities, but also have an impact on HIV cure and help elucidate underlying mechanisms of HIV disease pathogenesis. Through the formation of multidisciplinary teams, this initiative aims to uncover the pathophysiologic mechanisms that drive biological aging and age-related comorbidities in people living with HIV. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks applications for comprehensive systems biology studies using multidisciplinary team science to identify common, overlapping etiologies of HIV-asso...
