The Coulter Foundation and Global WACh have teamed up to offer pilot grants to support collaborative translational research in biomedical engineering addressing the clinical needs of women, adolescents and children.
Applicants must address unmet clinical needs and must have strong potential for near-term clinical impact and improved healthcare. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, novel drug delivery systems, home-based or other novel diagnostics, safe birth and newborn health technologies, injury prevention and control, nutrition technologies and food supplementation, vaccine delivery, and/or pediatric drug formulations. Innovations that jointly impact women, adolescents and children, and/or approaches that address dual outcomes or benefits, will be prioritized. Proposals that include graduate students or trainees are strongly encouraged.
