Exploratory Grant Award to Promote Workforce Diversity in Basic Cancer Research

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as the NIH, is an agency operating under the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is largely accountable for pursuing and financially supporting most of the nation's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The programs of the NIH are all designed to contribute to the achievement of its general agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."
