The NIH solicits applications from foreign Institutions in African countries who wish to develop the study of genomic/genetic/environmental contributors of human health and disease within Africa to understand health and diseases affecting African populations.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NIH is the largest public funder of biomedical research in the world, investing more than $32 billion a year to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. NIH supports H3Africa through the Global Health Program of the NIH Common Fund, a component of the NIH budget which is managed by the Office of Strategic Coordination/Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Coordination/Office of the NIH Director. Common Fund programs address emerging scientific opportunities and pressing challenges in biomedical research that no single NIH Institute or Center (IC) can address on its own, but are of high priority for the NIH as a whole. These programs are short-term, goal-driven strategic investments intended to change paradigms, develop innovative tools and technologies, and/or provide fundamental foundations for research that can be used by the broad biomedical research community. Several of the NIH Institutes and Centers also contribute to H3Africa projects.”
When you are preparing to apply for funding please bear in mind that the organisational director, the primary investigator and your institutional unit will be required to undertake a number of pre-registration processes which must be completed before you submit your application for funding. These include:
