NIH Provides Up to $30M for Proteomic Research Into Oral Diseases Resulting from AIDS

NEW YORK, Jan. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - The NIH's National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research issued a request for application last month to support proteomic research into oral diseases associated with HIV/AIDS.


Under the RFA, entitled "Protein Profiles of the Oral Mucosal Tissue in HIV/AIDS," the NIDCR will award up to $3 million each to up to 10 researchers to characterize protein profiles and protein-protein interactions in the oral mucosa in conjunction with HIV/AIDS.


The suppressed immune system resulting from HIV infection makes patients vulnerable to a variety of oral disorders, including tumors, infections, and ulcers. New research is expected to "identify novel strategies for prevention and management of oral manifestations of AIDS," according to the RFA.


The deadline for applications is Aug. 16.
