The Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (OMHHE) Research and Collaboration Program works with external partners to support research studies about minority health and health disparities. Research under this program provides insight into the scientific basis for individual therapies. Studies also provide future directions for research and aid regulatory decision-making.
