The National Institutes of Health (NIH), in partnership with the NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) and the International AIDS Society (IAS), announces this award program to support innovative research projects to introduce scientists from other disciplines to the field of HIV research.

The intent of this program is to attract both international and U.S.-based early-stage investigators from outside the field of HIV research to help address key scientific questions in HIV research, including emerging issues of long-term survival with HIV infection, prevention of HIV transmission, and research toward a cure.

The Concept Proposal Deadline has been extended to December 11th, 2015.
