Life Course Research Network: This announcement solicits applications for the Life Course Research Network (LCRN).  The life course theory posits that multiple determinants, such as health care, nutrition, stress and supports, and environmental exposures, operating over the life course are critical drivers of MCH outcomes.  The LCRN is designed to accelerate the translation of the life course theory to MCH practice and policy and foster its rapid adoption into clinical and public health settings through systems integration and collaboration among entities interested in improving MCH outcomes.

This cooperative agreement opportunity will establish and maintain an interdisciplinary, multi-site research network.  A network is a scientific forum for collaboration and infrastructure building that provides national leadership to improve and advance the field of life course research.
