Brief Description

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit research to better understand the epidemiology and biology of oral human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, its acquisition and persistence, in people living with HIV and elucidate the initial mechanisms related to HPV-associated oral and oropharyngeal cancers and warts in the context of HIV. The FOA intends to address broad knowledge gaps related to biological, immunogenetic, clinical, and socio-behavioral factors and mechanisms for oral HPV co-infection and persistence in the oral cavity and oropharynx of HIV-seropositive individuals.
