NIH funds seven science education partnership awards

Bethesda, Maryland -- The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced today it will provide $8.1 million to fund seven FY 2004 Science Education Partnership Awards (SEPA). The projects will receive from two to five years of funding. SEPA programs are designed to improve the country's life science literacy by bringing together biomedical and clinical researchers, educators, community groups, and other interested organizations in partnerships to create and disseminate programs that provide a better understanding of science research. SEPA funds programs that serve K-12 students and teachers, as well as science centers and museums across the country. In addition to targeting students, SEPA partnerships also develop projects that educate the general public about health and disease, with the aim of helping people make better lifestyle choices as new medical advances emerge.

"It is crucial that we get our young people -- particularly minority students -- engaged and excited about the tremendous advances being made in biomedical research," said NCRR Director Judith L. Vaitukaitis, M.D. "By exposing them to the challenges of medical science and the inquiry-based scientific method, we hope to both improve students' science literacy and increase the number who will pursue biomedical careers."

    Boston University School of Medicine (Boston, Mass.)

    Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (Oakland, Calif.)

    Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colo.)
