Program Summary

Program Summary

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for the Pediatric Centers of Excellence in Nephrology (PCEN) to support both basic and clinical research on pediatric kidney disease.  The emphases for this program are several-fold: (1) to continue to attract new scientific expertise into the study of human pediatric physiology and kidney disorders in humans and in disease models; (2) to encourage multidisciplinary research in these areas; 3) to explore new areas with translational potential and 4) to design Developmental Research (DR)/Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) studies which should lead to new and innovative approaches to study kidney disease in the pediatric population, and the eventual submission of competitive investigator-initiated R01 research grant applications.
