LAST CALL: research grant programme
Creative and Novel Ideas
in HIV Research (CNIHR)

START A CAREER IN HIV RESEARCH: THE INTERNATIONAL AIDS SOCIETY TOGETHER WITH THE U.S. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, AND THE CENTERS FOR AIDS RESEARCH INVITES EARLY-STAGE INVESTIGATORS TO APPLY FOR AN HIV RESEARCH GRANT

September 17, 2011 - The International AIDS Society (IAS), in partnership with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the NIH-supported Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR), launched a new round of the joint research grant programme, Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR).

The CNIHR programme supports projects intended to advance the scientific understanding of HIV by exploring new approaches to pressing scientific questions on such issues as the long-term survival of individuals with HIV infection, mechanisms behind establishment of viral reservoirs, new approaches for the prevention of HIV transmission, and innovative models of health care delivery. It is designed to promote innovative research and new ideas from early-stage investigators whose primary focus has previously been in fields of scientific inquiry other than HIV/AIDS. It aims at recruiting and training tomorrow's leading HIV researchers from across many areas of science, whose work will benefit not only HIV, but other fields of research as well.

The first step of the competitive application process is open on the CNIHR website ( www.cnihr.org ) and will close on 17 October 2011. Applicants will be asked to complete a two-step process to assess the quality of their research projects. Awardees will be selected by mid-April 2012.

Successful applicants will be invited to the XIX International AIDS Conference ( AIDS 2012 ), in Washington D.C. 22-27 July 2012, where they will be officially awarded. They will also have the opportunity to attend an HIV orientation seminar with leading experts and take part in a networking session during the conference.

In an effort to reach early-stage scientists that are currently not involved with HIV research, we would like to ask for your assistance by circulating this information to your networks. With your help, we can reach a maximum number of scientists and foster innovative ideas to advance HIV research. We would like to request your help in the following ways:

  • Please inform eligible candidates of this programme.
  • Please advise us of specific science networks we should be aware of in marketing this scholarship programme.
  • Please post the enclosed banner and/or flyer on your website
