Developmental Core




The Developmental Core of the San Diego Center for AIDS Research (SD CFAR) provides grant opportunities to emerging investigators and others on a limited basis. Click the links below to learn about our two primary funding opportunities. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Developmental grants are available to full SD 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. Since 1994, the Core has awarded more than $5.3 million in grant funding for Developmental grants. Our grant recipients have earned more than $221 million in subsequent grant funding and produced almost 900 publications based on their SD CFAR-supported research. 

Administrative Supplements are offered by NIH when funding is available. The subject matter and eligibility requirements are highly variable and are announced along with relevant due dates and award amounts as soon as we receive notice from NIH. To date we have awarded $4.3 million in supplements, which have resulted in $8.1 million in subsequent awards.
