Nutrition Obesity Research Centers Grant Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, otherwise referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating under the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily designed to encourage and support the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The grants and initiatives 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."

In an attempt to support this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to establish the Nutrition Obesity Research Centers Grant Program wherein both agencies intend to solicit grant applications that wish to establish core centers which will be an essential part of an integrated program of nutrition and obesity research.
