Clinical Sites for the IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (UG1)


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invites applications for institutional research capacity building programs from entities/institutions in Institutional Development Award (IDeA)-eligible States that propose to support a team of experts to engage and implement pediatric clinical trials. The program aims to provide research infrastructure as well as supervised professional development in research and clinical trial implementation to assist institutions in IDeA-eligible States in establishing and maintaining pediatric clinical trial teams. The institutions that successfully compete to become an IDeA State pediatric clinical trials site will be integrated with a Data Coordinating and Operations Center (DCOC) to form a research network to conduct multicenter study of pediatric conditions and disease processes. The proposed activities will provide the infrastructure and resources needed to initiate and participate in pediatric clinical trials and that will enhance the competitiveness of the investigators to obtain additional funding for pediatric clinical research. The IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network is being created to investigate all diseases and conditions relevant to the pediatric population, but priority will be given to the four focus areas of the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program which include: 1) upper and lower airway disease; 2) obesity; 3) pre-, peri-, and postnatal outcomes; and 4) neurodevelopment.
