The Duke CFAR is excited to announce a new funding mechanism available to faculty level CFAR members. CFAR Microgrants of up to $20,000 will be now be available on an ad hoc basis throughout the year. These one year awards are intended to facilitate HIV/AIDS research by providing modest, but essential, resources that are not readily available from other sources. The Microgrant program is designed to support new NIH grant applications that will increase the HIV/AIDS funded research base at Duke.
Microgrant Awards should be used for
- Generating preliminary data for planned HIV/AIDS-related NIH grant applications with review by CFAR leadership.
- Bridge funding for generating preliminary data to address a weakness for HIV/AIDS-related NIH R grants that received scores, but were not funded. (Summary statement required)
- Performance of specific experiments requested by manuscript reviewers. Must be HIV/AIDS-related. (Manuscript review required)
