The Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA) Program is a K12 Program grant award. The CHRCDA program is supported by the National Institutes of Health and is designed to stimulate pediatric research over a variety of disciplines through training of productive physician scientists. The CHRCDA program enhances the capacity of pediatric research institutions to provide junior faculty investigators with cutting-edge training in an academic research setting and to foster translational research by more rapidly applying basic science findings to clinical problems. In turn, these forward the goal of the CHRCDA program − to promote the performance of research and transfer of findings that will benefit the health of children. Here at Cincinnati Children’s, established investigators including Arnold W. Strauss, MD, and Marc E. Rothenberg, MD, PhD, have worked to develop a CHRCDA program of research and mentoring excellence. Qualified junior faculty investigators are welcome to apply for the CHRCDA.
*Minority and Underrepresented Minority status as defined by the National Institutes of Health and determined by CHRCDA Scholar self report.
Physician scientists bring a valuable perspective to biomedical research because their clinical training enables them to bridge the gap between basic science investigation and treating disease.
