Center for AIDS Research: Call for Proposals
Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program, FY 2007
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.
During the current funding cycle, we are able to offer awards up to $50,000 for each grant. Grants are for a one-year period and are not renewable. It is expected that funds will be available in July 2006.
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, are available at www.uphs.upenn.edu/aids/PilotGrant07.htm. “Pre-Submission Mentoring” is available to junior investigators. Application deadline: Friday, March 17, 2006. For additional information, please contact: Evelyn Olivieri, room 353 BRB II/III/6160, phone: (215) 573-7354, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
