HIV/AIDS pilot study research funds are available from the UCSF AIDS Clinical Research Center (ACRC), a component of the UCSF AIDS Research Institute (ARI). These funds are provided by the Universitywide AIDS Research Program (UARP). The deadline for applications is Monday, March 1, 1999. Faculty applicants can submit studies in basic science, epidemiology, behavioral science, as well as clinical trials. Predoctoral students involved in AIDS research with faculty mentors are also eligible to apply. For further information and applications, contact Mr. Layne Ethington at (415) 476-8857 or layne@itsa.ucsf.edu.

ACRC is also seeking faculty members who would like to be included in its database of peer reviewers for the Pilot Study Program. Peer reviewers confidentially fill out a one-page form briefly addressing six categories about the merits of a proposed pilot research project (generally 10-15 pages in length) that is within their field of expertise. Each proposal is reviewed by several reviewers and is finally ranked for funding by the Dean's AIDS Advisory Committee. To receive a survey form that identfies your field(s) of expertise, contact Mr. Layne Ethington at (415) 476-8857 or layne@itsa.ucsf.edu.

The Women's Center has produced three new resource guides for the campus community. All of these resources are available at the UCSC Women's Center or by calling (831) 459-2291 or sending e-mail to women@cats.ucsc.edu.
