The University of North Carolina Center For AIDS Research (CFAR) is soliciting proposals for small grants for up to one year (ending by 7/31/23) to support emerging (new and early stage) HIV investigators or experienced investigators new to HIV research interested in evaluating innovative clinical, social and behavioral questions among people with HIV using existing data from specifically targeted large UNC CFAR-supported cohort studies (MWCCS [formally MACS/WIHS], UCHCC, CNICS, NA-ACCORD).

Recipients of this Award will be well-positioned to incorporate pilot data from their proposed research question into a larger R21 or R01 NIH grant proposal, on which they will serve as PI. In addition to the generation of pilot data to enhance a future NIH grant application, Awardees are expected to produce a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal from study data.
