The National Institutes of Health, otherwise known as NIH, is an agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is generally accountable for funding and supporting all of the biomedical and health-related research studies.
The initiatives of the of the NIH are guided by its general goal which is to constantly acquire new knowledge that would contribute to the appropriate prevention, early detection and diagnosis, timely treatment of various diseases and disabilities.
In accordance with this goal, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) in an attempt to establish the Competitive Revision for Technology Development Within Biomedical Technology Research Centers Program.
The program aims to invite awarded Biomedical Technology Research Centers (BTRCs) to compete for funds that will be utilized in the development of technologies that will go beyond the typical scope of biomedical science.
Biomedical Technology Research Centers are generally responsible for the creation of essential, more often unique, technological advances at various fields of science and eventually, its application to a wide range of basic, translational, clinical research studies.
With the help of the funds that will be awarded under this competitive program, the NIH believes that the eligible BTRCs will now have the chance to explore the emerging needs of the scientific community and in the process, develop new technological projects that were not yet within their means at the time they were awarded with their respective BTRC funds.
