International AIDS Society’s CIPHER Grant Programme

The International AIDS Society has launched the Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) Grant Programme to fund, to a total of US$1 million, research projects that have the potential to contribute to the optimization of diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care of infants, children and adolescents affected by HIV.
The grant programme is part of the initiative aimed at answering outstanding clinical and operational research questions needed to optimize clinical management and delivery of HIV services for infants, children and adolescents.
CIPHER has two goals:
  • Goal1: Invest in and promote priority paediatric research
  • Goal2: Strengthen paediatric cohort collaboration
The intention of the grant programme is to attract early-stage investigators – from inside and outside the field of HIV research – to address critical questions related to growing up with an HIV infection, as well as to examine the impact of HIV or antiretroviral perinatal exposure in uninfected children. Supporting and attracting investigators to the field of paediatric HIV research can help encourage innovative ideas and fundamental research that provide better understanding of key unresolved questions.
The deadline to submit letter of intent for this grant is 26 November 2012. For more information, visit this link.
