This Notice announces the expansion of the Mentored Research Scientist 
Development Award (MRSDA) program supported by the National Institute of Child 
Health and Human Development (NICHD) through the establishment of the NICHD 
MRSDA (K01) in Population Research.  Support for the MRSDA (K01) currently is 
provided through the NICHD National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research 
in the area of rehabilitation research 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not96-301.html) and the NICHD 
Center for Research for Mothers and Children in the area of child abuse and 
neglect (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not99-117.html).  

The NICHD MRSDA program is being expanded to include the Demographic and 
Behavioral Sciences Branch (DBSB), Center for Population Research.  The 
mission of the DBSB is to provide a better understanding of populations-- how 
populations change in size, composition, and distribution; the complex social, 
economic and cultural factors that cause populations to change; and the 
consequences of population change for health and well-being at the individual 
and societal levels.  The DBSB will utilize the K01 to support career 
development for junior-level researchers in the area of population research.  
The DBSB population research program focuses mainly on fertility, reproductive 
health, family and household structures, health, mortality and morbidity, 
migration, immigration, population and the environment, and population 
distribution and characteristics.
