Howard University Launches Pilot Research Program

Howard University and the National Institutes of Health have launched a pilot program called the NIH–Howard University Intramural Research Collaboration (NIH–HUIRC).

The collaboration aims to successfully position Howard’s junior faculty on the path to becoming seasoned research investigators.

The first phase of the NIH–HUIRC will be a two-year pilot to engage junior faculty, graduate students and medical students to identify innovative ways to address routine and recurring issues that arise in scientific research collaborations.

Upon successful implementation of the pilot, the partnership’s subsequent phases will expand to include faculty and students from other academic programs in the University.




“Connecting You to HU” is our goal. Howard alumni truly define this university and reinforce the powerful legacy that is our alma mater.
