This notice is an addendum to revise the ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS,

Multi-Institutional CFAR section of Program Announcement PAR-97-027,

enters for AIDS Research (CFARs), which was published in the NIH

Guide for Grants and Contracts, Vol. 26, No. 3, January 31, 1997.

The following is the revised section in its entirety:


o  Multi-Institutional CFARs. Two or more institutions that can

demonstrate a credible plan for collaborative research networks using

CFAR cores may submit an application for a single CFAR award

involving multiple institutions. In particular, investigators at

nearby institutions may prepare a more competitive application as a

multi-institutional CFAR. A multi-institutional CFAR application must

designate a prime institution that will receive the award and provide

details of agreements regarding coordination and support of cores and

activities at other participating institutions.


With appropriate justification, CFAR awards may support a core at a

distant site, including a foreign site, that provides a unique

resource such as a primate facility or a high resolution NMR

facility. To achieve administrative efficiency and foster a sense of

community and collaboration, in general, each unique resource will

serve as a core for only a single CFAR, and all cores within any

single institution will be part of the same CFAR award.  However, in

certain situations two separate CFARs may have a demonstrated need to

develop a core facility at the same unique resource site or share

core facilities.  In these instances, the applicant should justify

the use of a unique resource that serves as a core for more than one

CFAR, address any potential problems, and demonstrate that such usage

will strengthen the CFAR.




Inquiries concerning this announcement are encouraged.  The

opportunity to clarify any issue or questions from potential

applicants are welcome. Potential applicants may gain additional

information from the CFAR home page WWW:
