Funding

B Cell Help Immunology Program for AIDS Vaccine Strategies (R01)

Description
Grant Amount: Unspecified.

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to: (1) support multidisciplinary projects that define the role(s) played by innate immunity and T cells in shaping the B cell response to HIV-1 antigens; and (2) identify strategies to modulate innate immune mechanisms and T cell differentiation pathways to optimize B cell helper functions for enhancing HIV-1 vaccines and generating long-term memory.

The objectives of the BCHIP for HIV-1 Vaccine Design are to support: (1) innovative studies that identify new immunization strategies to induce protective persistent antibody; and (2) studies that increase fundamental knowledge of the immunological mechanisms involved in the induction and regulation of B cell immune responses leading to protective HIV-1 antibody responses, both systemically and in the mucosa.

Due to the complexity of generating protective humoral responses to HIV-1, applications that leverage multidisciplinary collaborations in synergistic basic discovery research in immunology, virology and host genetics are encouraged. These collaborations may comprise the translation of existing critical knowledge and technologies from other fields for the benefit of HIV-1 vaccine design. Translation of the proposed hypothesis into immunogen design and/or immunization strategies for evaluation in animal models is encouraged.
