Notices of Special Interest: Improve your NOSI know-how

Notices of Special Interest: Improve your NOSI know-how Longtime readers of this blog may remember thatback in 2018, NIA adopted a new strategy for announcing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research topics we hoped to support. Instead of publishing a separate Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on each topic, we created two “parent” Alzheimer’s and related dementias FOAs — PAR-19-070 and PAR-19-071 — and then issued a series of “child” notices that outlined the areas of research that fell within the purview of those parents. Notices can be published much more quickly than FOAs, so this parent/child system was a faster, more agile approach to soliciting applications in specific areas of Alzheimer’s and related dementias research.

NIAID Scientists Find a Key to Hepatitis C Entry into Cells

In a new paper published in Nature, scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, describe the structure of a key protein on the surface of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and how it interacts with its receptor found on some human cells. The findings provide new leads for developing an HCV vaccine.

Researchers use exosome-based strategy to block HIV in mice

In a new study supported by the National Institutes of Health, researchers used exosomes, tiny nanoparticles capable of being taken up by cells, to deliver novel protein into the cells of mice infected with HIV. The protein attached to HIVs’ genetic material and prevented it from replicating, resulting in reduced levels of HIV in the bone marrow, spleen, and brain. The study, funded by NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and published in Nature Communications, paves the way for the development of novel delivery systems for suppressing HIV.
