Description

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Advisory Council advises the Secretary of DHHS, the Assistant Secretary for Health, the Director of National Institutes of Health, and the Director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute on matters relating to the cause, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart, blood vessel, lung, and blood diseases; the use of blood and blood products and the management of blood resources; and on sleep disorders. The Council considers applications for research and research training grants and cooperative agreements and recommends funding for those applications that show promise of making valuable contributions to human knowledge. The Council may also make recommendations to the Director, NHLBI, respecting research conducted at the Institute. The Council meets four times a year--winter, spring, and two meetings in the fall. The minutes of the most recent meetings are available for reading or downloading. For additional information you may contact:
