The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites grant applications for Research Centers of Excellence in Pediatric Nephrology. The purpose of the research center is to attract a partnership of interdisciplinary research among investigators with scientific expertise who will use complementary and integrated approaches to study kidney diseases endemic to the pediatric population. In approaching the study of these disease processes, it is anticipated that extensive collaboration will be required among individuals in the clinical and basic sciences, including cell biology, molecular biology, immunology, virology, genetics, epidemiology, biochemistry, physiology and pathology. Studies designed to foster and extend the development of new approaches into the causes, early diagnoses, improved treatment, and where possible, prevention of these diseases and disorders are appropriate.
