Brief Description:

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is seeking public comment on models and best practices to facilitate diversity among faculty and students within research institutions of higher education. This information will help the NINDS in designing improved strategies for the enhancement of diversity in the neuroscience and neurology research workforce. For the purposes of this RFI, NINDS is interested in expanding the pool of individuals from populations underrepresented in biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences research workforce, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. For a complete definition of underrepresented groups, see: PA-08-190 (Section I, Recruitment and Retention Plan to Enhance Diversity).
