NICHD Consortium for research on pediatric trauma and injury prevention
Funding Opportunity Purpose
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage multidisciplinary collaborations to target gaps in research on pediatric trauma and injury prevention. The team science approach encouraged by this FOA could be used to generate a research resource, which may include discovery-based or hypothesis-generative approaches, to advance the relevant area of biomedical research or to devise breakthrough ideas, concepts and approaches to therapies in pediatric trauma and injury preventionresearch.
A priority of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Pediatric Trauma and Critical Illness Branch is to advance the science related to pediatric trauma and injury research and to support research that generates new knowledge, research resources, and discoveries that promote the prevention of childhood injuries as well as effective treatment, management and rehabilitation.
The R24 mechanism is being used to create a consortium of collaborative research teams to address the aforementioned priorities. Teams funded through this initiative will comprise the NICHD Consortium.
