  • understanding the relationship between hormonal contraceptives and HIV acquisition
  • potential drug-drug interactions in multi-purpose prevention technologies with focus on clinical  outcomes such as ovulation and pregnancy
  • hormonal exposure effects, by the various progestins, on the immune cells and HIV acquisition

Parent grants may be issues from any branch at NICHD. NIH intends to commit $650,000 in FY2017 to supplement 4-5 awards for a one year period. The maximum award budget is $75,000-100,000 in direct cost, and the work must be completed within the approved project period of the parent award.
