Funding Detail Description

This limited competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks an application from the current Sickle Africa Data Coordinating Center (SADaCC) to continue support of the activities of the renewed and expanded Sickle Pan-African Research Consortium (SPARCO), including the clinical coordinating center (CCC) in Tanzania, the 3 established sites in Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania (and additional satellite sites), as well as up to 3 new Consortium sites located in additional sub-Saharan African nations. Together, these entities will constitute the Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) Network. This network aims to develop a sustainable resource that will advance SCD-related epidemiologic, translational, and clinical research studies. The SADaCC application needs to propose a feasible and meritorious plan to provide overall project coordination, administration, data management, and biostatistical support of the SCD in SSA Network. In particular, this FOA seeks an application that plans for effective integration of SADaCC activities with those of SPARCO, the Consortium Sites, NHLBI, and review/monitoring bodies.
