Common Fund Programs

The goals of Common Fund programs align with three general categories:

  • Transformational Science and Discovery (TSD): These programs are designed to establish new scientific principles, models, and research resources to transform scientific knowledge and paths to discovery.
  • Catalytic Data Resources (CDR): These programs are designed to manage and develop data for scientific discoveries by accelerating research through data resources. 
  • Re-engineering the Research Enterprise (RRE): These programs are designed to transform how we do biomedical and behavioral research, how we make the biomedical workforce as robust as possible to ensure new perspectives and ideas contribute to discovery, how we transition that research into prevention and therapies, and how those successful prevention and therapies can be shared broadly.
