The mission of the Nationwide Children's Hospital’s NRSA is to provide a robust and comprehensive infrastructure to guide and foster career development of pediatricians in subspecialty training as they transition from clinical training to a successful, independent career as a laboratory investigator. Nationwide Children’s NRSA aligns seamlessly with our Child Health Research Center Development Award (CHRDA), providing a well-delineated pathway for training physician scientists with MD or DO degrees at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
The Research Institute’s five-year strategic plan establishes the recruitment of physician scientists with expertise in clinical and translational research as a priority. Our current NRSA theme – molecular medicine in pediatrics – aligns well with our strategic plan and will continue as our existing premise for the grant. Molecular medicine has converged with mainstream healthcare, and thus, the extraordinary opportunity for advancement in the prevention and treatment of childhood diseases via molecular approaches has escalated.
