Child Health Research Career Development Awards. (Fellowship, Grants, & Awards)


The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) supports a program of Child Health Research Career Development Awards (CHRCDAs) intended to develop resources to speed the transfer of knowledge gained through studies in basic science to clinical applications that will benefit the health of children. The CHRCDAs will support research career development of pediatricians who have recently completed subspecialty training and who are commencing basic and/or clinical research relevant to child health. The goal of this initiative is to advance research in child health and to support educational institutions in their ability, to stimulate novel research initiatives and career development experiences for junior investigators. This will be accomplished by increasing the number and effectiveness of established pediatric investigators who have a grounding in basic science and research skills that can be applied to the health problems of children, as well as by increasing the number of pediatric medical centers that can stimulate and facilitate the application of research findings to pressing pediatric problems.

A CHRCDA grant provides pediatric research institutions with an opportunity to build a greater capacity for nurturing junior investigators. Individuals with a wide range of biomedical and biobehavioral backgrounds, especially those with a basic science orientation, are asked to mentor newly trained pediatricians just embarking on their research careers. The established investigators make available their expertise, guidance, and laboratory facilities to be utilized by junior investigators for research projects that will enhance their basic science knowledge and skills. Although mentors from collaborating departments may provide expertise and resources, the emphasis remains on research that is relevant to clinical pediatrics and its various subspecialty areas.

Applications from institutions not previously funded for CHRCDAs are encouraged. A CHRCDA may be awarded to a children's hospital or to a department of pediatrics of an approved medical school in the United States that has 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. Grantee institutions must have the clinical pediatric specialties and subspecialties, and the discrete clinical and research facilities 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.
