    Description

    The proposed UW CFAR is organized around 6 core units:
    Administration (including information transfer/publications and
    research training); clinical and molecular retrovirology;
    immunology, clinical research; biostatistics and epidemiology
    (including International AIDS Research and AIDS Registry); and non-
    human primate research. Two additional core units, behavioral
    sciences research and radiological imaging research, are envisioned
    via separate funding in future years. Over 75 faculty staff
    investigators of the proposed CFAR participate in active or pending
    research grants directly related to AIDS, HIV, or SIV and many of
    these also have other active grants in closely related fields such
    as non-primate retrovirology, molecular/cellular immunology, and
    other STDs. Ten distinct AIDS related themes have been identified,
    many involving parallel research in humans and non-human primates.
    The proposed CFAR would help coordinate this research to ensure
    efficient use of primates in research most relevant to human
    infection. Six active and two pending institutional post-doctoral
    research or clinical training grants at the UW are AIDS related.
    The process of planning this proposal has helped to coordinate the
    new allocations of 7450 sq. ft. of lab space to basic research on
    HIV and SIV. The CFAR would fund alteration, renovation, and
    equipping of a portion of these labs on the UW campus and at Fred
    Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Planning for relocation of the
    HMC AIDS Clinic and the NIAID ACTU is already funded and underway.
    The CFAR would fund creation and co-location of a CFAR Clinical
    Research unit, including clinical and epidemiologic research
    trainees at the same site as the AIDS clinic and ACTU.
