NIH funds new HMS, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Partners In Health research unit

March 3, 2015

An ongoing collaboration between Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a community health program in Lima, Peru, has provided an exceptional platform both for carrying out complex biomedical research in a resource-poor setting and for improving the delivery of health care to an under-served population.

In the latest chapter of that relationship, Brigham and Women’s, Harvard Medical School and Partners in Health will host one of four new centers for the Tuberculosis Research Units program with funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. This large-scale grant will provide up to $19.5 million to support the seven-year collaborative program of basic and translational research on tuberculosis at the Socios En Salud clinics in Lima, Peru.
