Whether you are applying for a San Diego CFAR International Core Pilot grant or have recently been awarded one of these grants, the San Diego CFAR can help you with your research. You have the same resources available to you as do applicants for our San Diego CFAR Developmental Grants.
In addition, you should have regular contact with your San Diego CFAR collaborator, who can advise you on a number of items, from the technical details of your study to IRB/ethics approvals to preparing your NIH-formatted biosketch.
Finally, the administrative staff of the International Core will assist you after your application is approved to collect the forms needed for NIH review and approval. The administrative staff will also help with transferring funds from UC San Diego to your institution to support your research.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which funds all Centers for AIDS Research, has published an operations manual for international institutions to help them apply for and manage NIAID funding. The procedures in this manual are more applicable to larger NIAID awards than our International Pilot grants. We will be developing instructions and videos specifically for SD CFAR awards. Meanwhile, feel free to download Word or PDF versions of this manual for your international institution's grants management team.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
