INITIAL AIDS RESEARCH PROJECTS

The major goal is to provide support for international junior investigators to carry out mentored research that will provide the background for an NIH or other International Agency (USAID, UNAIDS, WHO, etc) application for HIV/AIDS funding.

PILOT PROJECTS

Eligible candidates are international basic or clinical investigators who may have funding in other disciplines funded by NIH or other International Agencies, but are new to HIV/AIDS research.  The major goal is to provide support to foster interdisciplinary AIDS-related research among our international researchers and their institutions.
