Center for AIDS Research: Feasibility Grant Program
The Penn Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) seeks pilot project applications to its Developmental Core. Proposals regarding any aspect of HIV/AIDS clinical care, epidemiology, virology, immunology, structural biology, vaccine development, or prevention are considered relevant to the goals of the Developmental Core. The CFAR is particularly interested in proposals that bridge programmatic areas, for example, virology and epidemiology, and in proposals that address areas that are not represented in research already ongoing at the CFAR institutions (Penn, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and the Wistar Institute). Proposals that include an international component are also encouraged.
Grants range up to $40,000 for one year, and are generally not renewable. Faculty members holding appointments at the CFAR institutions who meet the following requirements are invited to apply:
Completed proposals are due May 15, 2001.
