Innovative Assays to Quantify the Latent HIV Reservoir (R01): The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research on new or improved methods for quantifying latently infected cells in HIV-positive individuals on effective antiretroviral therapy. Quantifying latent HIV reservoirs is critical to evaluating strategies to cure HIV infection in vivo. The current gold-standard method involves a limiting dilution viral outgrowth assay that is slow, resource-intensive, and relatively imprecise. A molecular assay to accurately detect replication-competent provirus, or a viral outgrowth assay with improved efficiency, would facilitate proof-of-concept studies for curing HIV infection.
