Member Wins Federal Grant for Health Equity Research

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) will award $1.5 million over five years, plus applicable indirect costs, to each of three academic institutions — including the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), a member of America’s Essential Hospitals — to develop Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers (TCCs).

NIMHD has committed $31 million to a program for TCCs, which will explore how precision medicine can promote health equity and improve research on minority health and health disparities. The TCCs will be made up of regional coalitions of research institutions and other partners.

Under the initiative, MUSC will launch a minority men’s health center to research the most effective methods for integrating, interpreting, and applying determinants of disease risks and outcomes to precision medicine strategies.
