Child Health Challenge (CH2)
The Research Forum – Child Health, a joint initiative of the Children’s Discovery Institute and the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, is sponsoring a novel funding program called the Child Health Challenge (CH2)*. The goal of the CH2 program is to move child health-related research projects along the translational spectrum from preclinical (T0/T1) studies to placing pragmatic solutions into patient practice (T3/T4). Funding (up to $25,000 direct costs; 12 month award) is available to support investigators needing to obtain essential preliminary, proof-of-concept or final data leading to a significant publication or an extramural grant application.
*The CH2 Funding Program was modeled after the Pitt Innovation Challenge at the University of Pittsburgh CTSI.
