The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) invites applications for a Cooperative Agreement (U10) to establish a Data Coordinating and Analyses Center (DCAC) for the Obstetric Pharmacology Research Unit Network (OPRU). The OPRU currently consists of four clinical research sites funded by NICHD to carry out pharmacology research to enhance understanding of obstetrical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and improve appropriate therapeutics during pregnancy. The DCAC will interact with OPRU sites, the OPRU Steering Committee and related subcommittees, the biological specimen repository, the Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), and the NICHD Program Scientists.
