CFAR Basic Science Award Program
The Basic Scientist Award Program provides funding for junior or senior fellows engaged in laboratory based HIV/AIDS basic science research, or faculty (all levels) moving from non-HIV into HIV/AIDS basic science laboratory research, who are seeking seed money to get a project started; or to gather preliminary data and findings for a future grant effort.
Applicants are encouraged to target research with the potential to enhance the interface between basic and clinical, basic and behavioral-epidemiological, or clinical and behavioral-epidemiological sciences, as reflected in the research priorities represented by the CFAR mission.
