Targeted Research Grant

I am pleased to announce the recipient of the 2022 Society of Pediatric Psychology Targeted Research Grant. This year we had 7 applications. The following proposal was selected for funding by the Targeted Research Grant Committee due to its scientific merit and alignment with the goals of this program, namely, to fund junior investigators whose work shows great potential for future major grant funding. This proposal also aligned with our priority areas, as specified in the Call for Proposals.   

Title: Feasibility and acceptability of a pilot intervention to promote adherence in pediatric celiac disease 

PI: Monique Germone, PhD
Institution: Children’s Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado School of Medicine 

Funding level: $20,000 

Thank you to the SPP Targeted Research Grant Committee for their work in reviewing the proposals!
