HIV/AIDS pilot study research funds are available from the UC San Francisco AIDS Clinical Research Center (ACRC), a component of the UCSF AIDS Research Institute. The deadline for the next funding cycle is October 1, 1998, and the last application deadline for the 1998-99 fiscal year has been tentatively set for 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 by phone at (415) 476-8857 or by e-mail at stom%layne@ccmail.ucsf.edu.

UC San Francisco AIDS Clinical Research Center is also seeking faculty members who would like to be included in a 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 the ACRC. To receive a survey form that identifies your field(s) of expertise or for further information about the Pilot Study Program, contact Ethington as indicated above.
