Mentored Collaborative Opportunities

The core team of investigators behind C-PROGRESS are senior scientists working in pediatric rehabilitation centers based at Virginia Tech in Roanoke, Virginia and The Ohio State University, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Individuals and research teams who seek to make high-impact and novel contributions to pediatric medical rehabilitation research have the opportunity to apply for mentored collaborative opportunities through C-PROGRESS. C-PROGRESS provides intensive mentored collaborative experiences that focus on increasing the competencies of investigators and the quality of their competitive applications in pediatric rehabilitation research. These include a mix of educational and hands-on opportunities that will support Phase I through Phase III clinical trials, comparative effectiveness and practices-based research, focused methods research, and implementation science trials.
