New Scientific Working Group (SWG)

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) is now accepting applications for new Scientific Working groups in HIV/AIDS research. A SWG is defined as a group of investigators (HIV or non-HIV) who share a common interest in a specific area of scientific focus that is critical to addressing the HIV epidemic, but is neglected or underdeveloped at the CFAR institution. The goal of a SWG is to promote multi-disciplinary collaborations that result in successful applications for new HIV/AIDS research awards. The SWGs should fall within the NIH HIV/AIDS priority areas (NOT-OD-15-137).
