National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Career Transition Award

by:

The National Institutes of Health, otherwise referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's greatly responsible for promoting and supporting the nation's biomedical and health-related research initiatives.

The programs and grants of the NIH are tailored to adhere to its primary 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 keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has collaborated with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to establish the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Career Transition Award Program.

The NHLBI Career Transition Award Program revolves around the idea of providing highly qualified individuals with a postdoctoral degree the opportunity to receive a mentored research experience in the NHLBI Division of Intramural Research.

In addition, the program also seeks to provide these individuals with the funds that will enable them to facilitate the transition of of their research programs as new investigators to extramural institutions.
