NIH grants support health disparities biomedical research


"A longer-term goal is for the CCHD institutions to prepare the next generation of biomedical investigators, especially from those populations that are under-represented in the biomedical sciences," said Dr. Vaitukaitis. "The intent of the funding is to support a vigorous and stimulating scholarly environment that will inspire students and research fellows to pursue careers that focus on health disparities."

Applications for the grants were sought from those institutions that participate in NCRR's Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program, which provide support to enhance the competitive research capacity and infrastructure at minority colleges and universities that offer doctorates in the health and health-related sciences. Institutions eligible to apply for RCMI grants must have one or more under-represented minority groups that individually or collectively comprise 50 percent or greater of their student body. To be eligible to apply for a CCHD grant, the applicant institution also had to be affiliated with a medical school.
