The purpose of this initiative is to establish a Clinical Research Network (CRN) of up to 15 clinical centers to design and perform multiple therapeutic trials for treatment of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) and to establish a Data Coordinating Center for the network. In addition, one or two patient outcomes research cores may be funded. The NHLBI intends to commit approximately $4,000,000 (total costs) in FY 2006 and approximately $36,000,000 (total costs) over a 5 year period to support the SCD CRN. The network will use a U10 cooperative agreement mechanism for support. Eligible organizations include those for profit or non-profit, private or public (such as universities, colleges, hospitals and laboratories), units of state and local governments and eligible agencies of the federal government. Finally, community-based and faith-based organizations are eligible to apply. Applying centers are restricted to the United States of America but may!
include satellites from foreign countries. Any individual with the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. Women, individuals in underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply. Each investigator may submit only one application for a Clinical Center, a Data Coordinating Center or a Patient Outcomes Core. However, the same institution may apply for each of these with different investigators.
