Request for Applications: ‘AIDS-Related Malignancies Research’ and ‘International Prevention and Policy Research for HIV/AIDS’
Institute / UCLA CFAR / UCLA JCCC are now accepting applications for the
§ AIDS-Related Malignancies Research
The UCLA AIDS Institute and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center are accepting applications for seed grants to fund multidisciplinary collaborative research between cancer and AIDS investigators on topics relevant to cancers that occur frequently in HIV-infected patients, including AIDS defining and non-AIDS defining malignancies. This includes research that will lead to the development of novel diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic strategies for both AIDS-defining and non-AIDS-defining malignancies, as well as research on
the molecular/cellular mechanism, pathogenesis or epidemiology of cancer in persons living with HIV infection. Proposals from junior investigators (professorial or research series titles) are encouraged. Funds are being
made available in conjunction with a supplement to the Cancer Center grant for sites having connections with the AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC), and from NCI-funded supplements to the UCLA CFAR and Cancer Center. Projects showing connection with the AMC, as well as those from junior investigators will
be given preferential priority in funding. Note: Projects proposing to study only virologic aspects of cancer-associated viruses (i.e. KSHV, EBV, etc.) will not be supported by this mechanism.
§ International Prevention and Policy Research for HIV/AIDS
The UCLA AIDS Institute, the UCLA CFAR and UCLA Center for World Health are accepting seed grant proposals to fund global HIV prevention, clinical, and policy research. The objective is to provide pilot funding for projects that foster collaboration between UCLA and scientists from high-priority developing countries, in order to stimulate research in these countries.
