Center for AIDS Research 2002
Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program
Call for Proposals
Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) seeks applications to the pilot
program offered through 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.
range up to $40,000 for one year, and are generally not renewable.
Faculty members holding appointments at the CFAR institutions
who meet one of the following requirements are invited to apply:
1) New investigators
who have never held extramural support from the NIH.
who have not previously worked in HIV/AIDS.
who have worked in HIV/AIDS who wish to study an area that represents
a significant departure from their currently funded work.
may be downloaded via the web at www.med.upenn.edu/aids.
Completed proposals are due by Friday, March 29, 2002.
