Funding opportunities within D&I aim to ensure that the lessons learned from research are relevant to, and, inform and improve – the quality of health, delivery of services and the utilization and sustainability of evidence-based tools and approaches. By closing the gap between research discovery and clinical and community practice, we hope to ensure that all populations benefit from the Nation’s investment in scientific discovery.
