One-year pilot grant awards to mentored and junior investigators to provide initial support for proof of concept projects focused on children of all ages as well as pregnant women and mothers of newborn and young infants. The projects should address translational science roadblocks and ultimately improve child and maternal health.
The program is intended to fund early-stage, preparatory or feasibility studies to overcome roadblocks in the translational process. This will apply to the variety of new disease pathways, technologies, protocols or participant recruitments strategies (to name a few) as stepping-stones toward a full and hypothesis-testing investigation.
