As noted on the MidContinental Region News blog, the National Health Council has launched a new website called Health Research Funding. The site is “designed to bring researchers with peer-reviewed, worthwhile, unfunded projects together with patient advocacy organizations and other funding sources. Working together, we hope to foster the funding of new research that will provide hope to millions of people in this country with chronic diseases and disabilities” (from the website).
Researchers with project proposals that have been scored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) but not funded are invited to submit their abstracts. Also, projects that have been peer-reviewed but not funded by a NHC member patient advocacy organization may also register.
