The Fine Print:
• Applications must align with the NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities (NOT-OD-15-137)
• The CFAR may only submit one application per project area to NIH.
• We will use an internal review process to select which pre-proposals go forward for development into full supplement applications

Project directors must be early stage*, NIH New Investigators or established investigators in non-HIV fields who have never received an R01 in HIV/AIDS (Post-docs are not eligible for this announcement).

*Investigators who are not considered an NIH ESI because they fall outside the 10 year limit and have NOT received any NIH HIV/AIDS research funding may be considered for this opportunity on a case-by-case basis.

Current mentored K awardees can provide complementary effort on the CFAR without salary within their remaining 25% effort. The mentored CDA must also maintain the 75% on the K. K awardees should consult with their program officer on the K to make sure they will allow this exception. Please see below for grants policy statement.

Post-docs are not eligible for this announcement.
