Investigation of the Transmission of Kaposi Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus (KSHV)

Funding Opportunity Purpose

 The purpose of the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to advance our understanding of the modes of transmission of Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV), also called human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8); the biology of the initial steps of infection; and risk factors for infection to inform efforts to prevent KSHV transmission and thus prevent Kaposi sarcoma (KS), KSHV-associated multicentric Castleman disease (MCD), primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), and other KSHV-induced diseases in populations living with HIV or at high risk of developing HIV.

This program covers two parallel FOAs of identical scientific scope. This FOA solicits applications for well-developed research projects using the NIH R01 funding mechanism. The companion FOA, RFA-CA-18-014, is a parallel announcement for exploratory/developmental projects using the NIH R21 mechanism.
