Transformative Research to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity Highlights
Innovative NIH Research Awards Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity
The Transformative Research to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity initiative issued awards for exceptionally creative research including innovative interventions to tackle health disparities and advance health equity. The set of eleven grants totals $58 million over five years, pending availability of funds.
The grants are innovative because the applications focused on the significance of the research problem, the novelty of the idea or approach, and the magnitude of the potential impact rather than on preliminary data or experimental details. Each of the awards includes an innovative intervention component and focuses on one or more NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities in the U.S. To read more about the research awards, see the NIH News Release.
