Penn Center for AIDS Research
FY 2006 Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program:
Call for Proposals
The Penn Center for AIDS Research (Penn 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 especially interested in proposals that bridge programmatic areas and, in particular, those that bridge clinical investigators with basic or behavioral scientists. These will be given preference. Proposals that include an international component also are encouraged.The maximum amount of funding for each grant will be $40,000. Grants are for a one-year period and are not renewable. It is expected that funds will be available in July 2005.
Faculty members, holding appointments at the CFAR institutions, who meet one of the following requirements, are invited to apply:
- New investigators who never have held extramural support from the NIH.
- Investigators who have not previously worked in HIV/AIDS.
- Investigators who have worked in HIV/AIDS who wish to study an area that represents a significant departure from their currently funded work.
Application form and instructions can be found at: www.uphs.upenn.edu/aids/PilotGrant06form.htm. “Pre-Submission Mentoring” is available to junior investigators; for information, e-mail Evelyn Olivieri at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: Friday, March 18, 2005. For general information, please contact: Evelyn Olivieri, associate director, Room 353 BRB II/III/6160, phone: (215) 573-7354, e-mail: email@example.com.
