NIMHD Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers for Health Disparities Research (U54)

Program Summary

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) seeks to establish specialized Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers for Health Disparities Research (TCC) that support trans-disciplinary coalitions of academic institutions, community organizations, service providers and systems, government agencies and other stakeholders focused on priority areas in minority health and health disparities. This initiative will support transdisciplinary targeted research, implementation and dissemination activities that transcend customary approaches and “silo” organizational structures to address critical questions at multiple levels in innovative ways. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support the development of TCCs focused on health policy research and social determinants of health research.

If more than one application is received identifying the same institution as the sole applicant or as the lead applicant in a partnership or consortium, all applications from this institution may be returned without review.
