The HARC Center Collaborative Opportunity Fund provides seed grants for new collaborations to study HIV-host interactions. The goal is to mesh structural and functional studies of HIV-host interactions performed within the Center with those of outside collaborators such that they inform and build on one another in pursuit of structural/functional insights and ultimately effective anti-HIV therapeutics. It is expected that seed projects will result in independent funding during or shortly after the seed funding period.
We encourage the HIV community and also new and non-HIV investigators with interests relevant to the Center's research foci to apply. Applicants must hold a faculty appointment at an institution in the United States that is eligible to administer NIH funds. Priority will be given to early-stage investigators who are either new to the HIV field or young investigators.
Deadline: Dec. 5, 2017 at 5 PM Pacific Standard Time
Funding to Start: Feb. 1, 2018
Funds available: Awards of up to $100,000 (total costs) will be made for the initial fund period (ends Aug. 31. 2018), with a potential second year of funding to be awarded in a competitive renewal process.
Eligibility: Applications are open to faculty at qualified institutions in the United States. Priority will be given to early-stage investigators who are either new to the HIV field or young investigators.
