This RFP aims to harness bioengineering technology to solve the problems posed by the HIV viral reservoir through collaborations between HIV cure scientists and bioengineers. Recent advances in nanomachines, synthetic biomarkers, in vivo sensors, multi-omic single cell platforms and other technologies have yet to be evaluated for their usefulness in curing HIV. Investment Grants provide a funding mechanism through which potentially groundbreaking, early stage approaches are encouraged, regardless of risk or scalability.
