Specialized Centers in Research in Pediatric Developmental Pharmacology (U54) 

Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) announces the re-competition of the Research in Pediatric Developmental Pharmacology Centers Program (RPDP). 

The NICHD proposes to fund a limited number of research Centers that 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 developmental pharmacology. The Centers also will serve as a national resource for the education 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.

Application deadline: February 18, 2016
