Human BioMolecular Atlas Program

In October 2018, NIH issued its first set of research funding awards for the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program. This is an open, global framework to support the research community’s efforts to map the adult human body at the level of individual cells. The project will award $54 million between 2018 and 2021 to support:

  • Generating, standardizing, and validating data sets on cell organization and variability.
  • Developing new tools and techniques to construct high-resolution tissue maps.
  • Coordinating program activities, managing Human BioMolecular Atlas Program data, and building an atlas of tissue maps.
