NIH Administrative Suppliment
Recently, the NIH released an administrative supplement to expand existing research to focus on Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) health. This trans-NIH effort, which involves multiple Institutes, Centers and Offices from across NIH, is intended to encourage investigation in this underrepresented, yet growing field of research. The application due date is November 30, 2015. We encourage you to take a moment to review the administrative supplement, and submit an application, if appropriate.
