The group will also give guidance to TRND program staff on when and how to transition individual projects to external partners and how long projects should continue if milestones are not met. The NIH budget for fiscal 2009 provided $24 million to establish this initiative. The TRND program will bridge the wide gap in time and resources that often exists between basic research and human testing of new drugs. The ORDR will handle TRND program oversight and governance. The TRND program will build on the pathway of the NIH Chemical Genomics Center (NCGC).
