Limited Submission Announcement

Thee National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite applications for Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) to provide administrative and shared research support to enhance HIV/AIDS research. Applications are being solicited for both standard CFARs and developmental CFARs (D-CFARs). Standard and D-CFARs provide core facilities, expertise, resources, and services not readily obtained otherwise through more traditional funding mechanisms. Additionally, D-CFARs provide support to assist investigators in the development of a competitive standard CFAR. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, especially between basic and clinical investigators, translational research between the laboratory and the clinic and vice versa, inclusion of minority investigators, and inclusion of prevention and behavioral change research.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary including 1) a brief description of each anticipated core, 2) how the center will promote and encourage activities that enhance collaboration and coordination of HIV/AIDS research, 3) how the cores will address the needs of HIV/AIDS investigators at MU, and 4) a brief description of the scientific programs, if any, that would be included.


An applicant may request a project period of up to 5 years. For D-CFAR applications, up to $750,000 total costs per center per year will be awarded. For standard CFAR applications, up to $3 million total costs per center per year will be awarded.
