NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Library of Medicine plans to grant up to $5 million dollars per year to fund a number of research programs that can help advance biomedical informatics, according to the National Institutes of Health.
The NIH research project grant, which is a reissue of a 2005 funding program, will support between 12 and 15 programs for up to three years, NIH said.
Informatics issues the NLM is interested in pursuing include integrating information from various sources; new approaches for linking phenomic and genomic information; information retrieval techniques for databases and data mining techniques; modeling and simulation techniques; techniques for visualization and presentation of information; and information analysis and evaluation.
Application areas could include health care, public health, basic biological and behavioral research, complex modeling, and clinical translational research.
