Developmental Core


The Developmental Core of the San Diego Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) offers two funding opportunities: Developmental Grants and pilot grants in HIV-Associated Malignancies. Since 1994, the Core has awarded more than $2 million in grant funding. Our grant recipients have earned more than $107 million in subsequent grant funding and produced more than 440 publications based on their San Diego CFAR-supported research.

Developmental grants are available to full San Diego CFAR members and faculty at our member institutions. The maximum amount that can be requested for a Developmental grant is $50,000 for unfunded junior investigators and $30,000 for others.

HIV-associated malignancy pilot grants are offered in collaboration with the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center and the AIDS Malignancy Consortium. The maximum amount that can be requested for these grants depends on the funding awarded from NCI each year and is detailed in the call for applications during each award cycle.
