The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Population Research Infrastructure Program provides resources to support and advance research that will improve understanding of the antecedents and consequences of population structure and change, facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration among investigators conducting population-related research and in allied fields, and promote innovative approaches to population research questions. An additional goal is to facilitate interactions among scientists in locations throughout the United States that contribute to the integration and coordination of population research. Applicants may request funds to support infrastructure development and/or research designed to: (1) enhance the quality and quantity of population research conducted at an institution, and (2) develop new research capabilities to advance population research through innovative approaches. A central goal of this program is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation in population research while providing essential and cost-effective core services in support of the development, conduct, and translation of population research based in centers or comparable administrative units.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 22, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) a listing of participating investigators and their departments, 2) population-related themes that exemplify the applicant program's most significant current and/or anticipated contributions to population research, 3) a summary of the vision for the research unit and its current and future contributions to population research.


This funding opportunity will use the NIH Resource-Related Research Project (R24) award mechanism. NICHD expects to commit approximately $2.1 million in total costs in FY 2007.
