Parenting center partners on $3.4 million NIH GO Grant

“A central aspect of this initiative is the promoting of nurturing environments that positively impact children, youth and families,” Prinz said.

“A secondary goal of the consortium is to develop and train early-career scientists who can carry on this important work for many years into the future,” Biglan said.

Early-career scientists affiliated with the university’s PFRC and participating in the initiative include Dr. Cheri Shapiro of the department of psychology and university alumnus Dr. Chaundrissa Oyeshiku Smith, based at Emory University in Atlanta.

Other institutional partners in the Promise Neighborhood Research Consortium include Oregon State University, University of Minnesota, PAXIS Institute, University of Florida and RTI International.
