NK Cells to Induce Immunological Memory to Prevent HIV Infection (R01)

Grant Amount: Unspecified.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to study the immunomodulatory or effector roles of Natural Killer (NK) cells in facilitating and/or regulating the antiviral adaptive immune responses in the context of HIV-1 vaccines. The outcome of these research projects should provide novel approaches to harness NK cell immunoregulatory function in HIV-1 vaccine design and also to enhance protective HIV-1 specific adaptive immune responses.

The primary objective of this funding opportunity is to support multidisciplinary, hypothesis-driven research on NK cells, leading to the discovery of pathways relevant to early immune responses and immune regulation impacting the sought-for protective immunity induced by HIV vaccination. Secondary objectives include the development of novel technologies to allow for more systematic and robust studies of human innate system monitoring in the context of vaccine clinical trials and to enable the recruitment of innate immunologists to the HIV vaccine field.

This initiative will support research to understand the early events triggered by vectored and/or adjuvanted HIV vaccines and the impact of vaccination on the effector/immunoregulatory balance of NK cells.
