U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Collaborative Public-Health Research Program with the Kingdom Denmark U10: HHS/CDC/NCBDDD is committed to achieving the health promotion and disease prevention objectives of "Healthy People 2010," and to measuring program performance as stipulated by the Government Performance and Review Act (GPRA). This RFA addresses "Healthy People 2010" priority area(s) of Maternal, Infant, and Child Health, and is in alignment with HHS/CDC/NCBDDD performance goal(s) to prevent birth defects and developmental disabilities. For more information, see www.health.gov/healthypeople and www.whitehouse.gov/omb/mgmt-gpra/. The Kingdom of Denmark has a singular combination of national public-health data systems currently in place that are not found in the United States. The Danish Medical Research Council (DMRC) develops and maintains these data systems, and is solely responsible for granting access to them. The Danish data systems include more than 200 long- established national disease and administrative registries, and a complete bio-bank of archived newborn blood samples of all children born in the Kingdom of Denmark. Many of these data systems are several decades old and have national coverage, so they include information on thousands of individuals over time. Researchers regularly consult these systems to investigate a variety of health issues such as time trends in disease or disease characteristics that require large data sets. The data systems also include the Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) of 101,042 pregnant women and their children. From 1997-2003, the DNBC uniquely collected serial bio-samples from mothers during pregnancy and the newborn (maintained in a bio-bank), and serial interviews of the mother during and after pregnancy concerning the mothers health and behavior and postnatal development of the child. The DNBC is intended to be a data bank for the future: a resource to tap for investigations of the long-term health effects in mothers and children of exposures in pregnancy. HHS/CDC/NCBDDD entered into a cooperative agreement with the Danish Medical Research Council in 2000 to develop and implement a United States-Denmark collaborative laboratory and epidemiologic infrastructure to examine a variety of public-health issues - with emphasis on activities that draw on the unique research resources in the Kingdom of Denmark. The renewal agreement began in February 2002 for five additional years. Because of the success of the cooperative activities between HHS/CDC and the DMRC, and the potential for a broader scope of activities between these agencies, HHS and the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation developed and signed a Joint Statement that will strengthen cooperation and facilitate the development of new initiatives and programs in the fields of public health and biomedical research. In essence, the approach of the proposed cooperative agreement will be to build upon the core features of the existing program to carry out current activities and serve as a foundation for potential new or expanded topics. All funded activities should include, but might not be limited to, one or more of the following core features: (1) enhancement of existing registries and bio-banks through expansion, improved automation, validation, or feedback/training to further promote public-health research applicability; (2) registry-based, analytic epidemiologic studies; (3) DNBC-based analytic epidemiologic studies, including participant-follow-up; and (4) the development of laboratory methods and their application on existing biologic samples (e.g., Danish archived residual newborn screening dried blood spots, and DNBC maternal serum samples).

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible Applicants: Application for this program is limited to that previously funded under Program Announcement Number 02006: the Danish Medical Research Council, in the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation of the Kingdom of Denmark. This limited eligibility is based on the key objective of the program to develop and implement a United States-Kingdom of Denmark collaborative laboratory and epidemiologic infrastructure to examine a variety of public-health issues for which data are not currently available in the United States, or would be much more costly to replicate - with emphasis on activities drawing on the unique research resources in the Kingdom of Denmark. The current grant recipient has the relevant mission and capabilities to draw on the unique Danish research resource triad (national registries, national bio-banks, and the DNBC) to accomplish the goals of the proposed program. The limited eligibility will sustain support to a well-established, multi-faceted program; take advantage of the foundation and multiple systems developed over time by the current grantee and now in place to meet the unique objectives of the program; and allow that organization to carry out multiple, ongoing public-health research activities.
