The CHPS charges for services and these costs must be included in all budgets. It is extremely important for investigators to contact CHPS when preparing grant budgets and submissions. The CHPS Administrative Director can provide this information. CHPS Administrative Directors are John Krall (pediatric) at krallj [at] email.chop.edu, (267) 425-1790 and Charles Molli (adult) at cmolli [at] upenn.edu, (215) 573-0900.
In addition, it is strongly recommended that investigators include a letter of support from the appropriate CHPS Program Director when their grant submission proposes the use of the CHPS. For a letter from the pediatric CHPS Program Director, contact Carole Marcus, MBBCh, at marcus [at] email.chop.edu or by calling (267)426-5842. Please contact Dr. Marcus at least 2 weeks prior to the date you need the letter and include the title of your project, the aims/objectives, hypothesis, funding source / grant type and a detailed list of CHPS services you will requesting. For a letter of support for a study utilizing the adult CHPS, contact the Program Director, Anne Cappola, MD, ScM, at acappola [at] uphs.upenn.edu.
