Specialized Centers in Research in Pediatric Developmental Pharmacology Program

Submission Date: March 22, 2011

Award Ceiling: $500,000

The purpose of this FOA is to announce the competition of the Research in Pediatric Developmental Pharmacology Program (RPDP). The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) proposes to fund a limited number of research Centers which will provide an arena for multidisciplinary interactions between basic and clinical scientists interested in establishing high quality translational research programs in the area of pediatric pharmacology. The Centers also will serve as national resource for the training and career development of new scientists electing to pursue careers in the conduct of translational research in high priority areas of pediatric developmental pharmacology. Finally, Center investigators will facilitate important community outreach and education efforts to increase awareness and convey the importance and implications of their research activities to the general public.
