Young Investigator Awards for Research in Child Development and Preventive Care


Improvement in the quality of child development and preventive care has been hindered by the small number of investigators working in the field and the consequent dearth of research. The Ambulatory Pediatric Association (APA), which has experience with supporting and mentoring young investigators, proposes to create a cadre of researchers dedicated to improving developmental services. The APA will recruit and, in collaboration with the Fund, select six young investigators for an award program. Those chosen will receive mentoring, networking opportunities, and a forum to present their research and receive feedback. Providing such strategic support early in academic careers could yield useful research in the short term, while influencing the focus of work over the long term. Future support for these awards may be available from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
