Two new grants from NLM

NLM recently announced two newly-issued grant programs, NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities and NLM Independent Career Development Award for Biomedical Informatics. Applications for both programs must be submitted through

The grant program to reduce health disparities solicits applications for projects that will bring useful, usable health information to populations affected by health disparities and the health care providers who care for them. Proposed projects should utilize the capabilities of computer and information technology and health sciences libraries to bring health-related information to consumers and their health care providers. The application deadline is July 14, 2010.

The purpose of the NLM Independent Career Development Award for Biomedical Informatics program is to facilitate the transition of investigators from the mentored to the independent stage of their careers. The award applies to research in clinical informatics, public health informatics or translational informatics. Preference will be given to candidates who received their informatics training at one of NLM’s university-based training programs in biomedical informatics. There are multiple application deadline dates.

Additional information regarding both grant programs is available in this recently published Latitudes article,
