Apply Soon for Health Disparities Research Institute
The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities will host the Health Disparities Research Institute Aug. 15-19.
The program provides a unique opportunity for early career researchers who are interested in health disparities and minority health research to learn more about the latest science and receive guidance on their own research project from leaders in the field.
Approximately 60 promising early career researchers, including senior postdoctoral scholars, research associates and assistant professors, will be accepted into the competitive program. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a high potential to benefit from the program and incorporate the training into their own research.
The free program will feature seminars, small group discussions and consultations with NIH staff involved in minority health and health disparities-related research. Participants will receive advice on research strategies and methods specific to their project and how to develop their project into an R01, R21 or K award application.
The online application will open soon on the NIMHD web site, http://bit.ly/hdinstitute16, and will close at 5 p.m. on June 1. For more information, contact the course planning committee at NIMHDHealthDC@mail.nih.gov.
