George R. Seage, III PHACS Early Career Investigator Mentored Research Award Program Application - OPEN
Applications for the 2022 George R. Seage III PHACS Early Career Investigator Mentored Research Award are now OPEN. The deadline is January 9, 2023.
Dr. George Seage was a beloved Professor of Epidemiology at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and one of the founding members of the PHACS network. George was a passionate advocate for research on HIV prevention and treatment using novel epidemiologic methods, and was a deeply committed mentor to many early career investigators, in PHACS and beyond. The PHACS Early Career Investigator Award was dedicated to George’s memory in the Spring of 2021. To read more about George, his accomplishments, and his legacy please see the PHACS In Memoriam Page.
PLEASE NOTE: As a reminder, PHACS is a network which conducts U.S.-based observational cohort studies, in which data collection is performed in domestic settings. Because the Early Career Investigator application highly encourages proposals which leverage existing PHACS data and repository samples, proposals that do not include the use of PHACS data or repository samples will be reviewed but may not be scored as favorably as those that do. Additionally, please note that awards can be made only to US institutions and proposals cannot include subcontracts or payments to foreign institutions.
PHACS Emerging Research Pilot (ERP) Program - CLOSED
Applications for the PHACS Emerging Research Pilot (ERP) Program are now CLOSED. The deadline was February 1, 2022.
The PHACS Emerging Research Pilot Program supports the investigation of new scientific questions arising during the course of PHACS studies, as well as previously identified scientific questions. These are scientific questions that align with the PHACS scientific agenda but were unable to be funded in the current grant funding.
These Pilot Program funds are intended primarily for PHACS-affiliated investigators who wish to apply for PHACS discretionary funds. These funds were required to be made available by the PHACS grant RFA in order to advance the aims of the PHACS protocols. Non-PHACS investigators may also apply, but at least one PHACS-affiliated investigator must be included on the proposal team, and data that can be collected by PHACS sites must be used.
