Jan. 5, 2003 – The HIV Clearinghouse of the V.I. Health Department calls the public's attention to funding for collaborative HIV-prevention research in minority communities, with a Jan. 15, 2003, deadline for applications.
This funding is available to scientists/researchers in tenure-track positions and investigators in research institutes who have not yet obtained RO1 funding from the National Institutes of Health.
Offered by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Center for AIDS Prevention Studies and sponsored by the National Institutes of Mental Health, the program is designed to assist scientists/ researchers in improving their programs of research and obtaining additional funding for their work. To increase the numbers of ethnic minority group members among principal investigators at NIH, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other equivalent agencies, investigators from the UCSF Center for AIDS Prevention Studies collaborate with scientists to develop an ethnic minority-focused HIV prevention research project.
Participants will: (a) receive mentoring and $25,000 to conduct their preliminary research; (b) spend six weeks in San Francisco for three consecutive summers; (c) receive a monthly stipend for living expenses and roundtrip airfare to San Francisco each summer.
Visit the program Web site for complete information and an application.
