Limited Competition for the Continuation of the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network Discovery Sites (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network conducts multi-center studies of urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome (UCPPS), a term used to encompass interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). The goal of the MAPP Network is to provide new insights into underlying pathophysiology, natural history, clinical phenotype, and risk factors as a foundation for future clinical intervention efforts and ultimately to improve clinical management. The MAPP Research Network is currently comprised of nine Discovery Sites, a Data Coordination Core (DCC), and a Tissue and Technology Core (TATC). The purpose of this Limited Competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications from the current six major MAPP Discovery Sites (awarded through RFA-DK-13-507) for an additional three-year project period. During this period, the MAPP Network will continue collection of longitudinal phenotypic data and biological samples from UCPPS participants currently enrolled in the Trans-MAPP Symptoms Patterns Study protocol and continue to conduct highly-collaborative, integrated data analyses for identification of new insights into UCPPS.
