"The purpose of this cooperative agreement opportunity is to support the creation and/or maintenance of a transdisciplinary, multisite research network that will accelerate the translation of developmental science into Maternal and Child Health (MCH) practice, promote scientific collaboration, and develop additional research capacity in the fields of adolescent and young adult (ages 10-25) health. A research network is a collaboration designed to conduct research across multiple sites, resulting in a greater collective impact. One institution serves as the primary awardee, and oversees and facilitates all network activities. The network must include researchers who study adolescence and young adulthood from a range of disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, behavioral and social sciences, and the medical and/or allied health fields, reflecting attention to the health and development of the whole person as well as to health care services for members of these two age groups."
