- The primary objective of the Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA) program is to provide pediatric research institutions with a greater capacity for mentoring junior investigators and, ultimately, to foster translational research on clinically relevant questions enabling basic science findings to be more rapidly applied to clinical problems. This RFA encourages innovative basic research related to pediatric diseases with the goal of accelerating progress in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of these conditions.
- The total amount to be committed to the program: Approximately $2.6 million in total costs in FY 2006
- The anticipated number of awards: up to six awards
- Award mechanism: NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program ( K12) award.
- Eligible organizations include: Children's hospitals or departments of pediatrics of approved medical schools in the U.S. that have as a primary teaching site either a general children's hospital or a children's program with an identifiable organizational structure that is part of a larger medical institution.
- Facilities needed: Sufficient to meet the purposes of the CHRCDA program, namely, to bridge clinical pediatric training with a career in basic and/or clinical research relevant to child health.
- Principal Investigators must be the chairperson of the Department of Pediatrics or the chief of the pediatric service.
- The NICHD does not limit the number of applications for a CHRCDA program from one institution. However, each application from the institution must have a different Principal Investigator.
