Studies in Neonatal Hypoglycemia
Submission Date: May 7, 2014
This FOA is issued by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to encourage applications from institutions and organizations to propose studies related to basic, applied and translational research in neonatal hypoglycemia. While much progress has been made in understanding the causes and mechanisms of altered neonatal glucose homeostasis, major gaps remain. Through this FOA, the NICHD is hoping to fill-in such knowledge gaps, which may lead to better monitoring and treatment strategies for altered neonatal glucose homeostasis. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
