nction under normal conditions and when the cell is stressed or diseased.

  • Knockout Mouse Phenotyping Program: Partnering with international researchers, this program will help decipher how specific genes control certain characteristics or phenotypes such as metabolism, energy balance, and physical appearance in mice. Mice are the most widely utilized experimental animal model. The program will also establish a system to characterize thousands of mice that have been engineered to have specific genes turned off, or knocked out.

  • Science of Behavior Change Program: This program examines how human biology, culture and society together influence a person's ability to adopt healthy behaviors and maintain them over time. This initiative will address effective motivation strategies that might be developed to curb unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, excessive alcohol drinking, poor diet and lack of exercise.

  • NIH Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cell Center: This program creates a national iPS Cell Center, under the NIH Intramural Research Program, to drive the translation of scientific knowledge about stem cell biology into new cell-based treatments.

  • Global Health Program: This program is designed for increasing capacity for global health research by enhancing education, training and research opportunities in developing countries.

  • Regulatory Science Program: This collaborative program between NIH and the Food and Drug Administration, announced yesterday, will encourage rapid and efficient use of new knowledge, technologies, and innovations in the development, investigation and regulatory review of medical products. The main goal is to ensure the development of safe and effective products based on the highest quality science in United States.

    "The NIH Common Fund was created to transform how we do science so we can tackle the toughest health problems facing our nation and the world," said Dr. C
