The Translating Duke Health (TDH) Children’s Health and Discovery Initiative (CHDI) announces a request for research proposals that investigate and positively impact child health and the trajectory of health into adulthood. Preference will be given to projects that involve a new collaboration, build a data resource that will facilitate high-impact child health research, and/or utilize existing data resources at Duke or those developed by the CHDI.
We plan to award up to four grants, each with a total budget of up to $100,000 (direct costs only) and a project duration of 1-2 years.
