March 3, 2020 – The National Eczema Association (NEA) and PeDRA announced their collaboration in creating the first-of-its-kind Childhood Eczema Challenge Grant to accelerate research that improves the health and quality of life of pediatric patients and their families. The grant of $50,000 will be awarded to an early or mid-career scientist or team of scientists whose research project will best further this goal.
The Childhood Eczema Challenge Grant will focus on at least one of four research areas: novel insights into disease heterogeneity, innovation in clinical practice and care, understanding and alleviating disease burden, and eczema prevention.
Applications for the Challenge Grant are due by May 1, 2020, with the awardee to be announced by June 30, 2020.
In addition to providing meaningful research funding to those awarded, the Challenge Grant furthers the missions and strategic priorities of both NEA and PeDRA.
