AHRQ and PCORI
AHRQ and PCORI invite applications from qualified institutions to create Learning Health System Embedded Scientist Training and Research (LHS E-STaR) Centers to support the professional development of scientists to conduct research that accelerates progress towards an integrated learning health system. To achieve this aim, the E-STaR Centers will build new models of LHS infrastructure that: strengthens institutional research training in CER and PCOR; enhances diversity in the LHS research workforce; strengthens partnerships with community partners and health system and other stakeholders; and conducts patient-centered clinical comparative effectiveness research projects to improve health system operations, quality, and health outcomes.
Applications will be funded under the P30 Research Program Projects and Centers grant mechanism, which supports Center Core grants intended to fund a multidisciplinary approach to shared resources and facilities for research and training by a number of investigators from different disciplines who focus on a common research problem. Programs are expected to prepare clinician and research scientists for independent research careers in PCOR/CER and equip them to advance the field through their training and scholarship as the next generation of Learning Health System Scientists and to support PCOR/CER and dissemination, implementation, and use of research findings.
