Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

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.
