NIH – HIV/HCV Co-Infections in Substance Abusers (R01)

The purpose of this FOA is to fill gaps in our understanding of (a) the impact of substance abuse on HIV, HIV/HCV co-infection associated disease progression, (b) the pathogenic interactions between HIV and hepatitis C virus, (c) hepatic and non-hepatic co-morbidities associated with HIV/HCV-co-infections in people with substance use disorders (SUDs), and (d) the effectiveness […]

NIH – The Impact of Microenvironment on Lung Progenitor Cell Function (R01)

The goal of this program is to stimulate basic research to fill a critical knowledge gap regarding the impact of microenvironment on lung progenitor cell function. This initiative will support innovative, hypothesis-based studies to catalyze this understudied area and will strongly encourage multi-disciplinary collaborations for the studies. In the past five to ten years, our […]
