Advancing Child Health through Translational Research
The Harvard Catalyst Child Health Initiative sponsored this Pilot Grant opportunity in order to generate new insights about conditions and diseases affecting children and their long-term consequences for adult health.
This 2012 RFA sought innovative applications that addressed one or more of three main themes:
- Innovative Technologies to Advance Child Health
- Health Systems and the Community
- Life-course, Development, and Transitions
This funding opportunity was open to any faculty member holding a Harvard University faculty appointment. A collaborative team was required and inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations were encouraged. Seven Pilot Grants were awarded in amounts of up to $50,000 for each one-year project.
Funding decisions for the Child Health Pilot Grants were announced in early April 2012.
