Funding Opportunity: 2020 CFAR Administrative Supplements Concepts due Monday, 3/23/20

Dear CFAR:

The UCSF-Gladstone CFAR is offering CFAR members an opportunity to apply for supplemental funding for research projects in the following scientific areas:

  1. Methodology and Data Science of HIV

  2. Increasing the Integration of Substance Abuse Services and HIV Prevention and Care

  3. Impact of Food Security on HIV Prevention and HIV Care

  4. Human Mobility and HIV

  5. Overcoming Barriers to HIV Reservoir Clearance

Supplement awards are for up to one year with maximum funding per application of up to $150,000 Direct Costs.

Project leaders for all scientific areas of interest are restricted to early career investigators who have never received an R01-equivalent, P-series, or U-series research grant. Established investigators in non-HIV fields who have never received an NIH research award for HIV/AIDS studies are also eligible. Post-doctoral fellows are eligible to apply if they will assume a faculty position by the time the supplement project and funding begins.

Each CFAR is only allowed to submit a total of four applications across all categories; therefore we are conducting an internal competition to determine which applications will go forward for submission to the NIH.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please:

  1. Read the guidelines for concept proposals and the attached full announcement
  2. Submit your concept proposal by filling out the webform at https://cfar.ucsf.edu/2020-cfar-supplement-concept-sheet-submission-form and attaching ONE FILE (MS Word or Adobe PDF) that includes the following three components (cover letter, description of proposal, and Project Director Biosketch) by 5:00 p.m. Monday, March 23, 2020
After selection of the finalists (with notification no later than April 5th), budget and other business elements are due by Tuesday, May 5, and the research plan must be final by Tuesday, May 12.

Please contact Lauren Sterling with any questions and forward this on to any investigators who you think might be eligible.
