Identifying Heart, Lung, and Blood Disease-Causing Variants

by:

The National Institutes of Health, otherwise known as NIH, is the agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is fundamentally responsible for all of the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The programs and objectives of the NIH are tailored to contribute to the achievement of their 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."

In keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to establish a program that aims to Identify Heart, Lung, and Blood Disease-Causing Variants.
