The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to seek applications for the Developmental Centers for Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology Program (P20).
Among the goals of this Program is to further advance research in benign urology by building research teams and facilitating
resources generation and sharing.
The research teams should be composed of individuals with complementary expertise who propose to either develop innovative resources (Resource Development Projects) or a new research project (Scientific Research Projects) that utilize integrative approaches to address questions relevant to benign urological diseases or disorders.
Patient-centered research is encouraged.
Resources developed by the Resource Development Projects will be shared upon validation while resources developed within the Scientific Research Projects will be shared at the end or termination of the award, as appropriate and consistent with the program goal of further advancing research.
Each Developmental Center is centered on a single Project and must contain an Administrative Core and an Educational Enrichment Program.
As part of the efforts of the Division of Kidney, Urologic and Hematologic Diseases (DKUH) to expand and enhance benign urology research, the Developmental Centers Program will work in partnership with the George M.
O'Brien Urology Cooperative Research Centers Program (U54) and the Multidisciplinary K12 Urologic Research (KURe) Career Development Program.
