As the CCHD enters its 30th year, the consortium has transitioned to a new administrative home at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute. Beginning this year, our leadership team will include Dr. Andrea Hussong (director of training in the Fall 2019) as well as Dr. Cathi Propper and Dr. Ayse Belger (the director of FPG) who will serve as the new co-PIs.
The CCHD is an NICHD-T32 funded program for predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees engaged in the advanced study of Developmental Science. Nearly 50 faculty from UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Greensboro, NC State University, and Duke University form a community of mentors for 12-15 trainees across these institutions. Key features of the program include the CCHD seminar series, regular training events, an outstanding team of mentors, and a longstanding track record of training excellent fellows who now serve in institutions around the world.
