Research Support Opportunity

In an effort to provide a “home” for investigators in the field of child health disparities research, the DC-Baltimore Research Center on Child Health Disparities is establishing a Child Health Disparities Consortium (hereafter referred to as “the Consortium”).  The Consortium consists of the following participating institutions – Children’s National Medical Center, Johns Hopkins University Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, DC Developmental Center for AIDS Research, Georgetown- Howard University Center for Translational Sciences, Howard University College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Sciences, Howard University College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.  As part of the Consortium, we are establishing a team of consultative experts to serve as advisors to consortium participants, particularly trainees and junior faculty members. 

The purpose of this RFA is to solicit applications from trainees and junior faculty members who seek guidance from consultative experts within the interest area of child health disparities research.  Requests may pertain to any aspect of child health disparities research (pre-study stage, active study stage, and post-study stage). This includes but is not limited to formulating research aims and matching designs, addressing questions about the IRB process, offering guidance regarding administrative steps associated with submissions of government and foundation grants, and writing manuscripts. Applicants from outside of our DC-Baltimore Research Center on Child Health Disparities Consortium institutions (Children’s National Medical Center, George Washington University, Howard University School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine) will not be eligible to receive biostatistical consultative guidance. For the 2015-2016 cycle, approximately ten requests, up to $1000 each will be funded. 


The next deadline is November 15, 2015.
