This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) requests applications for the Central Coordinating Site (CCS) for the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Research and Translation Core Centers (RTCC). The CCS is expected to work collaboratively with four RTCCs as part of the PKD Research Consortium and serve as a national resource for the larger research community. The CCS will provide central administrative and communications support for the Consortium. All activities within the Consortium are expected to address the overall goal of improving our understanding of the pathogenesis, progression, prevention and clinical management of PKD through enhanced sharing of resources and establishment of a robust research community. This FOA is a companion announcement to RFA-DK-19-010: Polycystic Kidney Disease Research and Translation Core Centers (U54).


The overall goal of the CCS is to organize and facilitate the activities of the PKD Research Consortium, under the direction of the PKD Research Consortium Steering Committee, to achieve the following objectives:


1) Facilitate sharing of resources and data within the PKD Research Consortium and with the wider PKD research community,
2) Develop a multipronged communication plan for disseminating the information about the research resources and methods offered through the RTCCs to the wider PKD research community,
3) Organize, support and facilitate the education and outreach activities of the PKD Research Consortium,
4) Develop, support and execute the Pilot and Feasibility Program to encourage new investigators in the PKD field,
5) Develop and manage a website for internal and external communication,
6) Plan, organize and support at least one annual face-to-face meeting for the PKD Research Consortium with a portion of the meeting open to the entire PKD research community,
7) Provide centralized administrative support, including coordination of Material Transfer Agreements across the Consortium,
8) Identify fixed and variable costs and establish procedures for negotiation of third party agreements or selection of subawards/subcontractors (i.e. clinical/research laboratories, biospecimen repositories, etc.), with involvement of NIDDK Technology Advancement Office, and develop processes to efficiently administer and manage same throughout the project, and
9) Schedule and coordinate web-based conference calls and webinars.
