Funding from the Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is available for developmental projects to bring insight and new ideas from early-stage scientists with expertise in other disciplines to HIV research. The Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR) grant program welcomes innovative proposals from both international and U.S.-based investigators to answer essential questions in HIV research, including emerging issues of long-term survival with HIV infection, prevention of HIV transmission, and research toward a cure.
Eligible applicants include junior investigators who have completed either their first terminal research degree or medical residency within the last 10 years, and who have a faculty or equivalent position at an academic institution or a comparable position in a not-for-profit organization or research institution. U.S. Federal Government employees are ineligible to apply. Awards will be funded for 1 to 2 years, up to a maximum of $150,000 in direct costs per year.
Due date: October 16, 2013
