Funding Opportunity: PCORI-AHRQ Learning Health System Embedded Scientist Training and Research Centers Program
A new grant from PCORI and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will provide up to $10 million annually over five years beginning in 2023 to help qualified institutions fund Learning Health System Embedded Scientist Training and Research (LHS E-STaR) Centers.
The centers will support the professional development of scientists to conduct research in a learning health system, in which internal data and experience are integrated systematically with external evidence.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to build new models of learning health system infrastructure; strengthen partnerships with community partners and health system and other stakeholders; and conduct patient-centered outcome research and comparative effectiveness research projects to improve health system operations, health care quality, and health outcomes.
Letters of intent are due Feb. 10. View the grant listing for more information and qualification criteria.
