Limited Competition: Addressing Health Disparities in Maternal and Child Health through Community-Based Participatory Research (R03)
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), requests applications to implement developmental community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects planned and developed by recipients of the Phase I Academic-Community Partnerships Conference Series awards under PAR-08-106 and RFA-HD-06-019. This FOA provides support for community based participatory research (CBPR) projects that were identified and planned during the Phase I grant award. Only one CBPR project will be supported per grant award. The areas of emphasis include: infant mortality; sudden infant death syndrome; fibroid tumors; childhood, adolescent, and/or adult obesity; literacy; techniques for outreach and information dissemination; pediatric and maternal HIV/AIDS prevention; and violence prevention.
Please submit a two-page letter of intent with a list of all anticipated investigators, description of proposed aims and approach, Biosketch of the PI, and a letter of support from the Dean or Chair to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, May 16, 2013. This letter of support signifies that the Dean or Chair have ensured the nominee’s eligibility per the sponsor’s requirements, and that the nominee and application are likely to be of sufficient quality to be competitive nationally. Full applications are due to the sponsor on 8/19/13, so you will need to have your materials in to the Office of Sponsored Programs by 8/12/13 for processing if given the go ahead by the review committee.
