The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) will bring together regional institutions with a common interest in rural and other health disparities to establish the Great Plains Health Research Consortium (GPHRC). The ARS-Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center will be one of the regional research institutions in this consortium.
The Great Plains Health Research Consortium will link those research institutions through scientist-to-scientist interactions facilitated by electronic collaboration technologies, and will seek to foster the development of collaborative research projects through the use of funds leveraging, technology/methodology sharing, and some seed funding.
