TRI Announces Pilot Recipients for Special Populations Studies

By David Robinson

Special populations include children, older adults, minority groups, underserved communities, and rural populations.

The grants of up to $50,000 will be used for one-year projects, and the researchers’ findings will be used to leverage larger grants from the National Institutes of Health or other federal funding agencies to expand on their work. The awardees were selected by a review committee that included UAMS faculty, faculty reviewers from an outside institution, and local community reviewers.
