Date:10/29/2009

The funds will benefit the entire institution and will be used to establish the Meharry Clinical and Translational Research Center (MeTRC) to further health disparities research already underway.

Nashville, Tenn. (Vocus) October 29, 2009 --- The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced today that it will provide $21.4 million over the next five years in support of Meharry Medical College's research enterprise via NCRR's Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMIs) Clinical and Translational Research (RCTR) program. The award is the largest NIH grant received in the College's history.

The funds will benefit the entire institution and will be used to establish the Meharry Clinical and Translational Research Center (MeTRC) to further health disparities research already underway.

MeTRC is a "center without walls" comprised of the Center for AIDS Health Disparities Research, the Center for Women's Health Research and the Participant and Clinical Interactions Resource. Under the MeTRC umbrella, doctors and scientists at Meharry Medical College will conduct health disparities research needed to take a basic discovery and use it to create new diagnostic tests or new drugs to help eliminate the disparities.

"Meharry has an exemplary record of addressing health disparities that disproportionally affect those from disadvantaged backgrounds in the Tennessee region as well as nationwide," said NCRR Director Barbara Alving, M.D. "The RCTR program can help Meharry researchers build on existing strengths that can be further developed to advance health preventions, treatments and cures."

"We know that African Americans are disproportionate
