PCORI funds research that offers patients and caregivers the information they need to make important healthcare decisions. Our scientific research portfolio is divided among five programs that reflect our National Priorities for Research. Each program issues PCORI Funding Announcements that may be either broad calls for applications or targeted to specific topics. These programs also participate in the selection of awards and oversee the projects as they progress.
In addition, we have a program that supports the others by integrating their activities and providing evaluation expertise.
