June 2013 DAIDS Council-Approved Concepts

Concepts represent early planning stages for program announcements, request for applications, or solicitations for Council's input. If NIAID publishes an initiative from one of these concepts, we link to it below. To find initiatives, go to the Opportunities and Announcements portal.

NB: Council approval does not guarantee that a concept will become an initiative.

Sustained Release of Antivirals for Treatment and Prevention

For the published program announcement identifying location of peer review, see the September 11, 2013, Guide announcement, Sustained Release of Antivirals for Treatment or Prevention of HIV (SRATP) (R01).

Quantitative Viral Outgrowth Assay Service Resource

Request for Proposals

Contact: George Keane

Objective: Cure HIV infection.

Description: This initiative will provide funds and the laboratory infrastructure required to quantitate latently-infected cells in the blood of HIV-infected individuals, using the quantitative viral outgrowth assay (Q-VOA). The Q-VOA is the most accurate assay available today to measure latent virus in HIV-infected patients whose viral loads have been suppressed by antiretroviral therapy. This initiative aims to be a service resource to the HIV-eradication community by providing research laboratories with Q-VOA measurements of latent HIV.
