    Open to single PIs and/or research teams led by one PI are eligible. At least one member of the team should hold a Faculty appointment at Children's National Hospital/George Washington University. Funds and support are available for “shovel-ready” projects aimed at translating discovery to improved health, with special attention to issues related to achieving health equity. This opportunity has a quick turnaround and limited funding period (~4.5 months), therefore projects should be designed to utilize existing data and/or resources, including biorepositories, to positively impact decision-making by healthcare professionals, patients, parents, and the communities served by our institutions. Qualitative or focus group studies that can be completed within the short timeline of this award would also be acceptable.

    Now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Academic Year! The Global Health Initiative at Childrens National Hospital seeks to foster and encourage the development of research that addresses key pediatric global health challenges, improves health outcomes in resource-limited settings, and favorably positions faculty to obtain extramural funding in pediatric global health research. Projects to be considered must be conducted in a low or middle-income country (LMIC) on a pediatric topic of importance to that country and/or have direct relevance to emerging global threats. Proposals to study a health issue in a developing country that could be studied using a US population are not encouraged and will receive a lower score.
