The Child and Maternal Health (CMH) Component of the CCTSI is a clinical-translational research program focused on longitudinal research in children, pregnant women, and mothers to improve child and maternal health and prevent diseases that begin in early life. The CMH Pilot Program is a series of one-year pilot project awards designed to:
- Promote research in children of all ages;
- Promote investigation of the mother-child pair to achieve prevention-oriented, life course outcomes;
- Promote innovative research teams capable of interacting across disciplines, schools, institutions.
Awards will be for a maximum of $20,000 (indirect costs not permitted). The CMH Pilot Program intends to award at least $100,000 this year toward these research goals, with funding generously provided by the Children’s Hospital Colorado Research Institute.
