Most SEPA projects involve partnerships with school districts, communities, museums as well as state and national organizations. These partners are valuable in developing programs, recruiting participants, and collaborating on dissemination and evaluation efforts. The NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism is designed to support the development of creative and innovative research education programs for the development of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical researchers, or for public education and outreach on health-related research to a variety of audiences.
