The Bridge Funding Award is intended to significantly increase competitiveness for mainstream federal funding (e.g. NIH, CDC, HRSA) in minority health and health disparities research projects that involve the development of novel medical applications leading to improved patient care practices, particularly for diseases that disproportionately affect ethnic groups in South Los Angeles area and surrounding communities. To this end, the Bridge Funding Award serves to support the retention of CDU research faculty engaged in minority health and health disparities science. Click here to access the Bridge Funding Award.
