We are extremely pleased to announce plans for the release of our 7th AIR-P Network research RFA, ATN-AIR-14-07 "AIR-P Network: Innovative Pilot Proposals." This is a new and unique research RFA opportunity - separate from RFA ATN-AIR-14-06, which provides support for secondary data analyses of the Registry.
This new RFA will provide Network investigators with an opportunity to seek support for pilot research in many critical areas of interest. This mechanism offers subcontract-supported research under the planned HRSA AIR-P award, year 07. As before, the focus will be on physical conditions affecting children with ASD. The application guidance will provide details regarding level of support and submission requirements. The project should be designed as a 10-month study, and will also include an additional 2-month start-up period. All studies will have an end date of August 31, 2015.
