Funding Opportunities from National Health Council for Peer-Reviewed, Unfunded NIH Grant Applications
The National Health Council (NHC) is an organization that brings together all segments of the health care community to provide a united voice for the more than 133 million people with chronic diseases and disabilities and their family caregivers. These members include more than 40 patient advocacy organizations representing a diverse group of potential medical research funders who are looking to take advantage of the tremendous rigor of the NIH peer review process to efficiently identify fundable proposals.
HealthResearchFunding.org will facilitate an exchange of information that may lead to alternative funding opportunities for investigators whose proposals have been scored and deemed meritorious through the NIH peer review process, but are unfunded. The goal of the NHC database is to increase research support for prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disabilities and to improve public health.
NIH’s Office of Extramural Research posted a blog on their Website about this new funding opportunity on February 7, 2011. View the blog post and the discussion it generated.
