Pilot Grants for Child Health Research

“Advancing Child Health through Translational Research”

Harvard Catalyst Child Health Pilot Grants

This new Child Health Pilot Grant Program from Harvard Catalyst seeks to engage basic, translational, and clinical investigators from across the Harvard community in innovative, interdisciplinary research. The Pilot Grant Program will open for applications later this month. This email provides early notice to investigators that applications will be sought addressing one of three research themes:

1. Innovative Technologies to Advance Child Health

2. Health Systems and the Community

3. Life-course, Development, and Transitions

We seek research proposals that foster collaboration and stimulate novel approaches to key questions in child health. The critical qualities of successful applications will be innovation, feasibility, and impact, as well as responsiveness to the RFA themes.

The RFA will encourage applications from junior or mid-level investigators, as well as inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations. Any faculty member who holds a Harvard University faculty appointment irrespective of type of degree or institutional affiliation is eligible to be the Principal Investigator. Students, clinical trainees, post-doctoral and clinical fellows cannot serve as the Principal Investigator of an application, but may serve as Co-Investigators.

Watch for an announcement later this month with additional details and the specific opening date for the RFA.
