NIH announces new hubs as part of REACH program

Three new hubs have been chosen by the National Institutes of Health to create new tools to improve patient care.

The hubs are part of NIH's Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hubs (REACH) program and receive $9 million in funding over three years, according to an announcement.

The new awardees include The Long Island Bioscience Hub: Stony Brook University, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory; The University of Louisville; and the University of Minnesota.

As part of the effort these hubs "will develop therapeutics, preventatives, diagnostics, devices, and tools that address diseases within the NIH's mission." Announcement
