This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) supports research from creative early stage investigators who propose highly innovative, pioneering studies with potential to open new areas of HIV/AIDS research related to coinfections, comorbidities, and complications. Projects should reflect new and novel scientific directions that are distinct from concepts and approaches being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere. Projects must be consistent with the scientific priorities outlined by the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR). These priorities have been described most recently in NOT-OD-20-018.
