One of the major goals of the Sexually Transmitted Infections Cooperative Research Centers (STI CRC) is to recruit and retain talented new investigators from a variety of disciplines into the field of STD research.

We are pleased to announce the Call for Applications for Spring 2016 DRP awards.

The DRP awards are intended to provide seed money for research projects to generate hypotheses and preliminary data necessary for preparation of a competitive NIH K-Award , R03, R-21, or R01 application.

Application Instructions

Please see the Full RFA for detailed application instructions.


Applicants for DRP awards are scientists (M.D., Ph.D., or other relevant doctoral-level degree) nearing completion of the postdoctoral fellowship period or early in faculty positions. Applicants must be US citizens or Permanent Residents. Eligible individuals must not have served as a Principal Investigator on a NIH or other grant or contract (in the field of STD or HIV research) exceeding $75,000 direct costs per year. Previous DRP award recipients are not eligible to compete for a second DRP award. Applicants will be drawn from the new investigators interested in continuing STI research and located at UW or any of the UW-affiliated sites (e.g., Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle BioMed, Seattle Children's, etc). Contact the Award Coordinator, Teresa Linger tesska@u.washington.edu for questions regarding eligibility.

Funding of Awards

Applications will be reviewed by the STI CRC and the DRP Program Directors; outside reviewers may be consulted for their specific expertise. Funding decisions will be based upon merit of the application.
