The Center for Translational Neuroscience (CTN) at the University of Oregon has the mission of translating discoveries in basic neuroscience, psychology, and related disciplines to improve well-being, promote resilience, and mitigate the effects of early adverse experiences on physical and emotional health. CTN houses research projects, science communication initiatives, professional development, and intervention program development, implementation, and evaluation activities.

This grant supports the CTN to collect essential, real-time information on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on young children, their families, and the providers who deliver care and early education. The CTN will continue to conduct and analyze the Rapid Assessment of Pandemic Impact on Development-Early Childhood (RAPID-EC) national surveys of households with children ages 0–5 and child care providers that are designed to gather essential information on the needs, health promoting behaviors, and well-being of children and the important adults in their lives
