Investigating Co-Morbidities in Women's Cardiovascular Health

There are important questions related to the cardiovascular health of women, and particularly to diagnostic and therapeutic challenges arising from the common existence of co-morbid conditions. The latter consideration, as well as the limitations of the budgets of individual institutes and centers at the NIH, suggest that it may be reasonable for the NHLBI to consider cross-NIH collaborations with I/Cs that have related interests and expertise when drafting future RFAs in women’s cardiovascular health. NIA/NINDS/NIDDK may be logical, but not the only possible partners in this regard. This might increase the grant dollars available in some areas, leading to a greater return on the investment of government funds.
