We are pleased to share the FY2023 CFAR Administrative Supplement opportunity. Please review the announcement and the LOI guidelines below for details.
Each CFAR is allowed to submit a maximum of two supplement applications for Topics #1-3. Two applications can be in the same topic area. Clinical trials are not permitted. Please submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) no longer than 2 pages to the SD CFAR Administrative Core (email@example.com) by 12:00 pm PT on Friday, March 10. Attached is the LOI guidance. Submitted LOIs will undergo review by SD CFAR leadership and the final two (2) proposals will be selected for submission.
The purpose of this administrative supplement opportunity is to support innovative research projects (#1-3) that address key gaps in HIV/AIDS and will advance the field. This opportunity should build research capacity and be consistent with the recent NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities (NOT-OD-20-018). Research involving populations experiencing health disparities is encouraged (African Americans, Latinos/Hispanics, American Indians and Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, less privileged socioeconomic groups, underserved rural populations, and sexual and gender minorities).
In summary, a total of up to two (2) applications for Topics #1 – 3 will be submitted to NIAID through the SD CFAR Administrative Core.
Project leaders for all scientific areas of interest (Topics #1-3) are restricted to early career investigators who have never received an R01-equivalent, P-series or U-series research grants, and established investigators new to HIV. Post-doctoral fellows are eligible to apply if they will assume a faculty position by the time the supplement project and funding begins. Studies that are a continuation of previously funded CFAR supplements or funded NIH applications that do not address new specific aims are not eligible for funding under this announcement. Additionally, a proposed supplement application that is linked to a proposed application not yet funded is not eligible for funding under this announcement.

NIH occasionally announces opportunities for administrative supplements. These are grants in specific aspects of HIV research that are offered to all CFAR sites for periods of one or more years. They are considered supplemental funding to the sites' CFAR grant.
When we are informed of a new administrative supplement, we announce the opportunity and application instructions by email to our members.
We hope you will apply for one of these supplements. Please remember to acknowledge the San Diego CFAR in any publication that results from one of our grant opportunities.
