This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to form Centers of Excellence in Therapeutics (CETs) as part of the NICHD’s Maternal and Pediatric Precision in Therapeutics (MPRINT) Hub. The MPRINT Hub will serve as a national resource for expertise in maternal and pediatric therapeutics to conduct and foster therapeutics-focused research in obstetrics, lactation, and pediatrics while enhancing inclusion of people with disabilities. By serving as a national resource, it will aggregate, present, and expand the available knowledge, tools, and expertise in maternal and pediatric therapeutics to the broader research, regulatory science, and drug development communities. The MPRINT CETs will work together and with the MPRINT Knowledge and Research Coordination Center (KRCC; RFA-HD-21-025), the central coordinating center of the MPRINT Hub, to serve as a national resource for knowledge and expertise in maternal and pediatric pharmacology and as a research center to close deficits in knowledge and technical expertise. The MPRINT CETs will conduct cutting edge clinical, translational, basic, and/or data sciences research, provide resources, and generate novel tools and approaches to advance and accelerate research and regulatory science in maternal and pediatric therapeutics. The MPRINT KRCC will serve as the primary public-facing component of the MPRINT Hub and as a conduit to the resources of the MPRINT CETs.
