But we can also envision the consequences of investment -- not only helping ill children, but also making discoveries that will help advance adult health, particularly adult diseases with genetic components."

The Pediatric Research Center Establishment Act introduced by Sens. Brown and Bond will address this situation by amending Title IV of the Public Health Service Act to authorize NIH to establish up to 20 pediatric research consortia, each funded by a five-year grant of up to $2.5 million per year. Each individual consortium will be a multi-institution network with one leading pediatric medical center at the hub, reaching out to and working with numerous other children's hospitals and health organizations to conduct basic and translational pediatric research.

This model will maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of NIH resources that are allocated, as well as creating a wider pool for recruitment of patients for the clinical trials that will be conducted. There will also be collaboration and sharing of results among the various consortia, putting an intense focus on pediatric research and creating lines of communication across the entire U.S. pediatric research community for the first time.

"Childhood diseases are traumatic to the whole family," Sen. Brown said. "But we aren't doing enough to prevent diseases and treat childhood conditions.
