HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis

Under the area ‘HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis’ research will focus on developing new therapies, diagnostic tools, and preventive tools such as vaccines and chemicals barriers as HIV microbicides. Research efforts will confront the three diseases at global level, but will also address specific European aspects of the three diseases as hepatitis co-infection. Preclinical and early clinical research activities will be emphasised.

Topics for first call - Deadline 19 April 2007

  • HIV/AIDS Drug Discovery and Preclinical Development
  • Highly Innovative approaches for research into host pathogen interaction in tuberculosis
  • Development of fast tests for the diagnosis of Multi-Drug Resistant strains of HIV, malaria and tuberculosis, and of latent tuberculosis infection.
  • Addressing knowledge gaps in pregnancy malaria
  • Funding scheme: Collaborative Projects (small or medium-scale focused research projects)
  • Paediatric formulation of drugs against HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis
  • Funding scheme: Coordination and Support action
  • New HIV Vaccines inducing broadly-reactive neutralising antibodies
    Funding scheme: Collaborative projects (large scale Integrating projects)

Topics for second call - Deadline 18 September 2007

  • Network on HIV and anti HIV drug resistance
    Funding scheme: Collaborative projects (large-scale Integrating projects)
  • HIV and hepatitis co-infection
    Funding scheme: Coordination and Support action
  • Blocking the transmission of malaria: the mosquito vector target
    Funding scheme: Collaborative Projects (small or medium-scale focused research projects)
  • European network for study and clinical management of TB drug resistance
    Funding scheme: Collaborative projects (large-scale Integrating projects)
  • Support platform for the development of PRD vaccines
    Funding scheme: Coordination and Support action

Topics for specific International cooperation action (SICA) - Deadline 18 September 2007

  • Highly innovative research in HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis between Indian and European partners
    Funding scheme: Collaborative Projects (small or medium-scale focused research projects)
  • Coordination of European research activities with global initiatives, including Public-Private Partnerships
    Funding scheme: Coordination and Support action
  • Next Generation of researchers for HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and neglected infectious diseases
    Funding scheme: Coordination and Support action

Neglected Infectious Diseases

Under the area ‘Neglected Infectious Diseases’, research will focus on an integrated approach for the development of preventive, therapeutic and control tools for neglected infectious diseases: diseases caused by Trypanosomatidae species and a wider range of vector-borne diseases, as well as other neglected infectious diseases, including childhood infections.

Topics for specific International cooperation action (SICA) - Deadline 18 September 2007

  • Development of new tools to control infections due to parasites of the Trypanosomatidae family.
  • Development of a Leishmania vaccine
  • Bio prospecting for drug leads
    Funding scheme: Collaborative Projects (small or medium scale focused research projects)
