National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
NIDDK is issuing this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) in response to the urgent need for research on how coinfection with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the causative agent for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), might affect HIV-associated comorbidities, coinfections, and complications (CCCs) within its mission. NIDDK supports biomedical research on diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases; digestive diseases, nutritional disorders, and obesity; and kidney, urologic, and hematologic diseases. For this funding opportunity announcement, NIDDK is interested in studies to elucidate if COVID-19 might provoke or exacerbate noncommunicable gastrointestinal, liver, kidney/urological and metabolic/endocrine diseases in people with HIV (PWH) or worsen the consequences of viral hepatitis coinfection. Conversely, it is also important to elucidate whether people with HIV (PWH) with CCCs within the mission of NIDDK have different COVID-19 outcomes. Studies are expected to align with the HIV/AIDS research priorities outlined by the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) in NOT-OD-20-018 UPDATE: NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities and Guidelines for Determining HIV/AIDS Funding.
