Brazil Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT) (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Application open date: November 08, 2021
Expiration Date: December 09, 2021
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support a Brazil-US Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT) network to advance TB and TB/HIV science. The RePORT Brazil network will leverage and build upon Brazilian cohorts currently following adult and pediatric populations with active TB disease and their contacts or other high TB-risk individuals to address key research questions of regional and global interest. Specific areas supported under this program include, but are not limited to, research and development projects in TB/HIV in the areas of molecular epidemiology, diagnostics, biomarkers, vaccine development, and the impact of co-morbidities such as HIV and diabetes. Research outcomes should be capable of advancing tools with public health impact or of influencing decision making in TB public health to inform stakeholders on the best practices for early prevention, diagnosis, and clinical management of TB and TB/HIV.
