CDE is pleased to report that we have received official approval from NICHD for five years of continued funding for our Center grant (2019-24). The Population Dynamics Research Infrastructure Program at NICHD advances the field of population dynamics research by increasing the scientific impact of research, increasing competitiveness for peer-reviewed external funding, developing junior scholars, and minimizing the financial and time burdens of administrative efforts associated with research projects.
CDE is proud to have held NICHD center grant funding continuously since 1972. Our center is highly productive in terms of research funding and publications, with a growing interdisciplinary focus. CDE’s 75+ UW campus affiliates across more than 20 departments conduct research in five primary areas: (1) Fertility, Families and Households; (2) the Demography of Inequality; (3) Health and the Life Course; (4) Biodemography; and (5) Spatial and Environmental Demography. In addition to innovative research in each of these areas, CDE researchers continue to collect and produce high-quality data for use by the population research community, including a growing body of genetic, biomarker and environmental data.
