European region news, resources and funding for global health researchers

U.S.-European cooperation has been a strong and vital component of the NIH research agenda. While a few activities take place under the auspices of bilateral programs, the majority of collaborations are initiated and carried out without the assistance of formal agreements. Together with NIH, a number of other European governmental organizations carry out the bulk of the world's publicly funded biomedical research, supporting scientific investigations of practically every aspect of human health.
