This project is designed to develop Nebraska into a nationally recognized hub at the center of these research endeavors. Capitalizing on unique NU resources such as the Nebraska Academy for Early Childhood Research and Nebraska Extension, the team will develop and expand a network of researchers from across the University of Nebraska system whose expertise spans experimental neuroscience to statewide intervention delivery.

These grant activities will contribute directly to the development of ambitious, multidisciplinary, and compelling federal funding applications that will keep NU at the forefront of groundbreaking early childhood research.
