The popresearchcenters.org website, maintained by PRB’s Center for Public Information on Population Research (CPIPR), explains and publicizes the findings of research from the Population Dynamics Research Centers. Funding is provided by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
The Population Dynamics Research Infrastructure Program aims to advance the field of population dynamics research by increasing research impact, innovation, and productivity; developing junior scientists; and maximizing the efficiency of research support. The Population Dynamics Branch at NICHD administers the program.
The primary objectives of the Program are to:
- Increase the scientific impact, innovation, productivity of population dynamics research
- Increase competitiveness for peer-reviewed external funding in population dynamics research
- Support career development experiences for junior population dynamics scientists that will contribute to their research independence
- Maximize the efficiency of funding for population dynamics research by minimizing the financial and time burdens of providing administrative and other support services associated with research projects
The program is also designed to support the broad dissemination of data, methods, and materials in the field of population dynamics research.
