Australian Centre for HIV and Hepatitis Virology Research: Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI)

ACH2 is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) in applied research from qualified scientists to fund research projects aimed at:

  1. developing vaccine candidates for HIV, HBV subtypes, HCV or HTLV-1;
  2. developing preventatives such as HIV microbicides and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP);
  3. cure and treatment interventions for HIV, HBV, or HTLV-1, including immunotherapy;
  4. novel diagnostics and prognostics for HIV, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1 or hepatitis B/C/HIV/HTLV-1 co-infection;
  5. molecular tools for tracking epidemics caused by these viruses; and
  6. development of new tests for supporting vaccine and antiviral trials.

Basic research is not eligible, and grants aimed at development of new direct-acting antivirals against HCV are also not eligible.

Grants based on the specimens obtained from the Immunovirology Research Network collected from clinical trials or cohort studies of patients with HIV, HBV or HCV are also encouraged.


Funding & duration

Funding is available for 10 months from 1 December 2021, in line with the agreement with the Commonwealth Government (but with potential extension to 31 December 2022), for grants up to $100,000.


Chief Investigators must be equivalent to NHMRC PSP 4, usually with existing salary support for the duration of funding.  The eligibility criteria for CIs (see Guidelines on website) will be strictly interpreted by the Scientific Advisory Committee.
