Through this grant, NEA and PeDRA intend to accelerate research that improves the health and quality of life of pediatric eczema patients and their families. This Challenge Grant is intended to stimulate early and mid‐career scientists as they seek to build and sustain careers as research investigators and future thought leaders within this critical field of study.
The proposed research projects should cover one of the following research priorities:
- Cutting Edge Basic & Translational Science
- Eczema Heterogeneity: Novel Insights
- Innovations in Clinical Practice & Care
- Understanding & Alleviating Disease Burden
- Eczema Prevention
Applications are open to researchers at research institutions worldwide. The award provides 50,000 USD for 1 year (no indirect costs).
