Deadline: 7 May 2020
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is currently seeking proposals for its programme titled- Genomics of HIV/AIDS Drug Response and Co-Morbidities.
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to expand the use of high-throughput genotyping, genomic sequencing, and related genomic technologies, and generate resulting data resources widely available for research use, to improve the efficacy and safety and ease of use of HIV/AIDS therapies and of non-HIV drugs used to treat HIV/AIDS patients, and to reduce HIV/AIDS-related comorbidities, coinfections, and complications.
The research areas may include (not limited to) the following:
- Identifying genomic correlates of drug efficacy, toxicity and co-morbidity using dense SNP genotyping and/or targeted or whole exome/genome sequencing data in HIV/AIDS patients, and, as appropriate, a limited number of control patients not available through accessible databases;
- Developing, refining, and/or validating standardized drug efficacy, toxicity and co-morbidity phenotypes in well-characterized HIV/AIDS patients;
- Characterizing validated drug efficacy, toxicity and co-morbidity phenotypes in existing HIV/AIDS cohorts and clinical trial populations and relating them to available dense SNP genotyping or genomic sequencing data;
- Preparing genomic and phenotyping data for analysis and deposition for research access, by imputing genotyping data against appropriate reference populations, assigning phenotypes, correlating genetic variants with phenotypes, and other analytic processes as appropriate;
- Developing protocols for prospective collection of efficacy, toxicity and co-morbidity data in ancestrally diverse or minimally characterized cohorts available nationally and internationally.
