Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC :

Expanding the PRIDE program foci beyond NHLBI’s heart, lung, blood, and sleep foci, may involve a common-fund effort, for example by having multiple institutes involved in the program. It is well accepted that good research today is a collaborative effort that often reaches across institutes. For example, the research interests of several PRIDE/SIPID trainees were at the intersection of cardiology and areas such as cancer, diabetes and aging.
