GlaxoSmithKline will award research grants from $25,000 to $150,000 ($500,000 total) "for innovative HIV/AIDS drug research in recognition of the need to produce new alternatives and hope in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic." These grants "are intended to further the development of inventive treatments for HIV/AIDS, including: therapies aimed at treating infection; prophylactic vaccines; or microbicides designed to prevent transmission of the virus." Applications will be judged by a panel of outside experts; recipients will be announced at the ICAAC conference in September 2003; and the grants will be paid by November 1. There is no obligation to license resulting technologies to Glaxo.
