2019 Pilot Research Award for U54 Research Project

The District of Columbia Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (DC-IDDRC) conducts multidisciplinary  translational, clinical and community research into intellectual disabilities and other developmental disabilities (IDD), with the goals of improving our understanding of the causes underlying these conditions, developing innovative therapies, and preventing or ameliorating these disorders, thereby permitting each child to achieve his/her full physical and intellectual potential).
The DC-IDDRC seeks appliactions for 2019 U54 pilot research funding. A major part of the U54 is to support a dedicated RO1-equivalent research project for 5 years. In anticipation of the DC-IDDRC renewal for 2020/21 we seek competitive proposals for pilot funding in 2019 that will provide the basis for the next 5 year cycle U54 Research Project and will be a key aspect of a successful renewal application of the DC-IDDRC with planned submission Fall 2020/Spring 2021.
