About this Website
The goal of the NIHSEPA.org website is to disseminate information and resources related to science and health education projects and research. Most of the projects, resources and events described on NIHSEPA.org have received funding from the Science Education Partnership Awards (SEPA) program of the National Institutes of Health, which also supports management of the site through an Administrative Supplement (SEPA Award R25 OD021865) to Baylor College of Medicine. The website content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.
Projects, resources and events reported on NIHSEPA.org aim to improve understanding of health and biomedical research by increasing the scientific literacy of children, young adults, and the public at large. By exposing young learners to the excitement and value of scientific investigation, these projects and resources also contribute to the development of a diverse pipeline of future scientists and clinical researchers.
The NIHSEPA.org website is managed by Baylor College of Medicine. If you have comments about the website or would like to send updated information about a project, resource or activity, please contact the NIHSEPA.org website administrator at Baylor College of Medicine, Center for Educational Outreach.
