Collaborative Opportunity Fund

The HARC Center Collaborative Opportunity Fund provides seed grants for collaborations with Early Stage Investigators and those new to HIV Research. 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 strategies. A major goal of this seed funding program is to support recipients' transition to independent funding and it is expected that recipients will actively pursue this goal.  HARC Collaborative Opportunity Fund recipients will also receive mentoring on their first R01 application.

New and non-HIV investigators with interests relevant to the Center's research foci are encouraged to apply for funding.  We are committed to increasing ethnic and gender diversity in the Center, and encourage qualified applications from females and other underrepresented groups.

 Applications are currently closed.   

Deadline: TBD Spring 2021

Eligibility:  Applicants must hold a faculty appointment at an institution in the United States that is eligible to administer NIH funds.  Applicants must be either new to HIV research, or an Early Stage Investigator.  Please see this page to determine if you are an Early Stage Investigator.
