The Harvard University Center for AIDS Research (HU CFAR) is open for proposals for HIV/AIDS research awards beginning Oct. 1.

HU CFAR Feasibility Projects support high-risk/high-impact feasibility studies in AIDS research that broaden the scope of the HU CFAR, emphasizing new multidisciplinary collaborations (particularly new collaborations between different Harvard institutions) that lead to successfully funded peer-reviewed research. Junior faculty investigators (instructor, research scientist, assistant professor or senior research scientist) who have not yet acquired RO1-type AIDS research funding will be given priority, especially if their research is proposed in collaboration with a well-established investigator. Priority will also be given to researchers who have not previously been engaged in HIV-related research.

Applications are due Aug. 5 at 4 p.m.
