NIH Announces the Funding of The Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities
NIH Announces Ten Awards for Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities
The National Cancer Institute (NCI); the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI); and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are partnering to provide funds to continue the Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) program. This program responds to a strategic priority at the NIH to address disparities and inequities in the prevalence and outcomes of several diseases, particularly cancer and heart disease. The CPHHD program requires transdisciplinary research involving social, behavioral, biological, and genetic research to improve knowledge of the causes of health disparities and devise effective methods of preventing, diagnosing and treating disease and promoting health. Some of the previously funded Centers will continue to be supported, while others are new Centers. The applications that were selected for funding were those that received the top scores during NIH peer review.
