Funding Opportunity Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement applications to establish a multi-center, multi-disciplinary group of investigators to be known as the Urinary Stone Disease Research Network (USDRN). This FOA solicits applications for the Scientific Data Research Center (SDRC) and runs in parallel with a separate FOA that invites applications for the Clinical Centers (CCs) (RFA-DK-15-004). The USDRN will a) design and conduct a randomized clinical trial (RCT) to investigate the impact of increased fluid intake and increased urine output on the rate of recurrence of urinary stones in adults and children, b) conduct clinical research to understand and mitigate ureteral stent-related pain and symptoms, and c) provide data and collect biological samples from the studies to create a resource for future researchers. RFA-DK-15-004 will support USDRN Clinical Centers.
