Health Research Funding: Connecting Researchers + Funding Sources
The National Health Council (NHC) has closed its web database of worthy, peer-reviewed health research proposals and national health organizations interested in funding research.
HealthResearchFunding.Org has been live to the research community since February 2011 and grew to include more than 600 peer-reviewed health research proposals and 2,000 registered investigators. HealthResearchFunding.Org is a testament to great health research being conducted in this country.
The NHC learned that throughout the tenure of HealthResearchFunding.Org, NHC member organizations struggled to fund the many worthy applications. The NHC was unable to confirm that any matches were made as a result of the HealthResearchFunding.Org database. Therefore, although HealthResearchFunding.Org has experienced very positive and steady growth since its launch, the NHC decided to close down the site effective November 1, 2012.
The NHC remains committed to identifying other means for supporting and advancing research in the search for new cures and treatments for people with chronic diseases and disabilities.
