International AIDS Society announces inaugural recipients of innovative HIV research awards
Date:7/13/2010

14 July 2010 (Geneva, Switzerland) The International AIDS Society (IAS) today announced the recipients of its first joint research grant programme, Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR). CNIHR grants, funded in partnership with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the NIH-supported Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs) are designed to promote innovative research and new ideas from early stage investigators whose primary focus has previously been in fields of scientific inquiry other than HIV/ AIDS.

The CNIHR grants, which total $3.4 million (U.S. $) will fund research projects for up to two years. They are intended to advance the scientific understanding of HIV and to support new approaches to answer pressing scientific questions on issues such as the long-term survival of individuals with HIV infection and new approaches to the prevention of HIV transmission.

The 10 outstanding early stage researchers who have been selected for the initial grants come from a wide range of scientific disciplines and locations, including Australia, India, Mexico, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Their research projects will be supported in collaboration with a CFAR institution with expertise in the grantee's area of research.

"The IAS is committed to supporting early stage investigators to bring much needed creative ideas to the HIV field," noted IAS President Dr Julio Montaner. "This innovative grant programme, which builds on the outcomes of the IAS-NIH 2009 scholarship programme introducing investigators to HIV research, has encouraged a number of exceptional early investigators to start a career in HIV research. In fact, 4 out of 10 CNIHR grantees received their first HIV training at the IAS-NIH 2009 scholarship programme."

"We are pleased to partner in this effort and are impressed by the diversity and the quality of candidates and research projects selected by the CNIHR grant programme," s
