We are pleased to announce that the NIH has released a new 2017 Adelante RFA. Through Adelante, the Centers for AIDS Research strive to develop early-career investigators who focus on HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and care in the Latino/Hispanic community. Co-administered through the District of Columbia and Emory CFARs, the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs) will support 2- year Adelante Team projects that include a 4 month Research Preparation period followed by a Research Implementation period of approximately 20 months. Researchers from all scientific disciplines who are interested in advancing community-engaged HIV research with Latino and Hispanic populations are encouraged to apply.

Each CFAR Adelante Team will consist of a Principal Investigator (PI)/ Scholar, a CFAR Mentor, and a Collaborating Partner, who each meet the eligibility criteria. Proposed research should be community based and reflect local Hispanic/Latino-community needs, as identified by science and the local community.

Applicants may request up to $75,000 (direct costs) per year, plus applicable indirect costs, not to exceed $150,000 in total costs per year. This funding may be used for salaries, technical support, laboratory supplies, equipment, enrollment in training classes or workshops, travel to the CFAR Mentor's institution, or other research or training-related activities.
