NIH: Office of Disease Prevention


2017 Co-Funded Research Projects

The Office of Disease Prevention provides limited co-funding for extramural prevention grants, intramural projects, and meetings and workshops to NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) as well as to other agencies and offices. Priority is given to those areas where current research is lacking or additional research may be stimulated. Priority is also given to projects that address prevention research areas that span multiple ICs and those that focus on health disparities.
