Executive Summary

This initiative seeks to stimulate basic, translational, and clinical HIV/AIDS-related research within the mission of NIDDK that is aligned with NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities. The most recent priorities are outlined in NOT-OD-20-018, UPDATE: NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities and Guidelines for Determining HIV/AIDS Funding. Areas of interest include pathophysiological research on NIDDK-relevant comorbidities, co-infections, and complications; research toward an HIV cure that focuses on viral reservoirs in in anatomical sites relevant to the mission of NIDDK, behavioral and social mechanisms impacting the development and management of NIDDK-relevant HIV co-occurring conditions, and NIDDK-relevant topics that cut across more than one NIH HIV/AIDS research priority.
