Molecular Hematology Centers

The NIDDK Molecular Hematology Centers enrich research and generate investigative resources that can be made available to the broader research community.  They often have integrated teams of investigators from a wide range of disciplines, share specialized equipment, and serve as regional or national resources. 
The Centers provide a focus for multidisciplinary investigations into gene structure and function; the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the generation, maturation, and function of blood cells; and the development of strategies for the correction of inherited diseases.  The Centers often support a pilot and feasibility program that offers short-term enrichment activities and funds small grants to generate preliminary data for inclusion in larger grant applications.
