Core B Development
The aim of core B is to conduct responsive Mentored Scientist Pilot Grant and Catalytic Fund programs that accelerate junior faculty development. One-year pilot grants of $50,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis to junior faculty at both sites who have not previously received independent federal research grants. Senior investigators new to HIV research are also eligible to receive this grant.
The Catalytic Fund fosters collaboration by supporting teams that include outstanding researchers from both institutions. CFAR Core Awards, which allow investigators of all ranks to apply for credit of up to $7,500 for defined services are offered by Cores C, D, E and F.
Other goals of the Core B are to identify, mentor, and support the next generation of HIV investigators by requiring potential applicants, applicatants, and awardees to enter into a formal mentoring relationship with appropriate CFAR-designated mentors.
Minority Training Programs will also be provided by Developmental Core B.
