Trans-NIH Efforts

While the NIDCD focuses its research efforts on programs that support its mission areas, breakthroughs in related fields (such as neuroscience, genetics, and animal models) improve our understanding of communication disorders. In order to support these discoveries, the NIDCD participates in many Trans-NIH initiatives and programs. (Please see Appendix B for examples of some of these Trans-NIH activities.)
