Last update


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite applications for center core grants (P30) to support Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs): standard CFARs (CFARs) and Developmental CFARs (D-CFARs). CFAR cores provide infrastructure and promote basic, clinical, behavioral and translational AIDS research activities at institutions that receive significant AIDS funding from multiple NIH Institutes or Centers. CFARs foster synergy and improve coordination of research, support emerging research opportunities, and promote economy of scale through resources shared by multiple independent laboratories. CFARs and D-CFARs are intended to promote all AIDS research efforts at CFAR institutions. D-CFARs provide modest support for a limited period to assist investigators in the development of a competitive CFAR.

This program announcement describes two types of CFAR awards. The first is for a Developmental CFAR (D-CFAR) for AIDS investigators at an institution that is eligible, but does not yet have a CFAR. The D-CFAR will provide the support necessary to develop a collaborative network that may permit the institution to be more competitive for a standard CFAR award. The second type of award is for a standard CFAR (CFAR). Both the D-CFAR and the CFAR are funded through the P30 mechanism for infrastructure development.

Because MU is limited to one application for this competition, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 Friday, April 15, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and include a general description of the proposed D-CFAR, budget, and identification of any potential collaborations.

Amount: Up to $750,000 for a D-CFAR
MU Deadline: April 15, 2005
Agency Deadline: June 16, 2005
