Tennessee Center for AIDS Research Developmental Core Awards applications open; deadline is March 1

The Tennessee Center for AIDS Research, a partnership between Vanderbilt, Meharry Medical College, Nashville CARES, and the Tennessee Department of Health has announced that the application process for the 2024 cycle of CFAR Developmental Core Awards is now open. Each 1-year pilot award provides up to $50,000 of direct funding for projects in the HIV research field, and we particularly encourage early-career faculty and investigators of any career stage new to the HIV space to apply.

Letters of Intent are encouraged by Feb. 1, and full applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on March 1.

Applications are encouraged from any research discipline (clinical, translational, community, basic science, epidemiology, etc.) The CFAR will assure that early-stage investigators develop and maintain mentoring with established investigators so that they may acquire skills necessary for a career in HIV Research.
