Grant to a USA, Canada, or International investigator or multiple investigators to promote research focusing on pediatric skin conditions. Funding is intended to encourage research that will improve the quality of life and health of patients and their families. Grants are available to early and mid-career scientists to support targeted clinical research investigations focused on pediatric eczema.

The Childhood Eczema Challenge Grant is intended to stimulate scientists as they seek to build and sustain careers as research investigators and future thought leaders within this critical field of study. Research proposals should address at least one of the following priorities related to pediatric eczema:

  • Eczema Heterogeneity - Novel Insights: Projects aimed at advancing understanding of the underlying factors contributing to the diversity of pediatric eczema clinical presentation, treatment response and comorbidities.
  • Innovations in Clinical Practice and Care: Studies addressing approaches to facilitate optimal identification and treatment of pediatric eczema and associated comorbidities in all health care settings to enhance patient/caregiver-reported and patient/caregiver-centric outcomes.  
  • Understanding and Alleviating Disease Burden: Insightful proposals that identify, quantify, or aim to reduce aspects of pediatric eczema burden that negatively affect patient or family/caregiver quality of life (including lifestyle, academic, occupational, or economic impacts) based on patient population, treatment approach, etc.
  • Eczema Prevention: Novel investigations into the potential risk factors and strategies of primary eczema prevention in the pediatric population.

Priority will be given to proposals that focus on clinical or translational research, are broadly applicable, and include a patient-centered or comparative effectiveness framework. Applications that support NEA’s and PeDRA’s commitment to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion across all facets of their organizations and research are encouraged. Proposals that include basic research will be accepted, however, they should be combined with a significant clinical or translational component.

Salary and fringe benefit support is allowed. Staff salary support should be commensurate with the percent effort dedicated to the project and explained in budget justification. PI salary support must adhere to the current allowable NIH salary cap.
