NHLBI Research Programs

AIDS Program

The NHLBI AIDS Program provides global leadership for research, training, and education programs to promote research in the areas of HIV-related heart, lung, and blood diseases, as well as blood-based therapies.

The NHLBI AIDS Program believes that critical research in these areas will result in discoveries that enhance the survival and quality of life of patients with HIV, and may also lead to knowledge that benefits all patients with heart, lung, and blood disease.

SCOR and SCCOR Program

Specialized Centers of Research (SCOR) programs were initiated by the NHLBI in 1971 in high priority areas to encourage research to translate basic science findings to the clinic. The SCOR concept envisioned a research effort comprising both basic and clinical research projects focused on diseases and clinical problems relevant to the Institute?s mission. Interactions between the basic and clinical projects were expected to enhance transfer of fundamental research findings to the clinical setting and to help focus fundamental research investigations on issues of major clinical importance.


The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs are engines of innovation for developing and commercializing novel technologies and products to promote the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep diseases and disorders. The NHLBI provides grant and contract funding opportunities to support small businesses performing research and development on technologies related to the mission of NHLBI.
