The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities Research Centers (MRDDRC) Program invites Center Core Grant (P30) applications to advance the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of mental retardation and developmental disabilities. The primary objective is to provide core support and facilities for cohesive, interdisciplinary research and research training. The intent of MRDDRC Center Core Grants is to bring together scientists from a variety of disciplines to work within a center on the common problems of MRDD. NICHD strongly encourages translation of basic research observations into patient-oriented protocols whose ultimate aims are to validate the mechanistic basis of MRDD in humans, and to develop new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of MRDD. NICHD encourages, but does not require, applicants to include both biomedical and behavioral or biobehavioral components among the topics addressed.

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, October 5, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1)brief descriptions of each of the cores that will make up the proposed center; 2) a list of the required, federally-funded research projects that will use each core; and 3) a listing of the anticipated research topics relevant to the research mission of MRDD.


Up to $750,000 dollars direct costs per year for up to 5 years
