NIH and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention invite applications for research supplements to promote diversity in health-related research. All NIH Institutes and Centers participate in this program.
NIH recognizes a unique and compelling need to promote diversity in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences workforce. NIH efforts to diversify the workforce will: lead to the recruitment of the most talented researchers from all groups; improve the quality of the educational and training environment; balance and broaden the perspective in setting research priorities; improve the ability to recruit subjects from diverse backgrounds into clinical research protocols; and improve the Nation’s capacity to address and eliminate health disparities. This initiative provides funds for administrative supplements to support and recruit students, postdoctorates, and eligible investigators.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Michelle Jones-London, program director, Office of Minority Health and Research, NINDS; telephone: 301- 451-7966; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-08-190.html.
