This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide junior faculty pediatricians with state of the art training in an academic research setting to stimulate pediatric research over a variety of disciplines.
The program provides supervised research career development opportunities to assist
junior faculty in their transition to productive pediatrician scientists.
The goal of the Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA) Program is to promote the performance of research and transfer of findings that will benefit the health of children.
This will be accomplished by supporting research career development of new faculty-level pediatricians, to be known as CHRCDA Scholars.
These K12 Program grant awards will generate well-qualified pediatrician scientists who will help meet the need for highly skilled physician investigators who can take advantage of new technologies and respond to the increasing demands of pediatric research.
