NIGMS Hosts Minority Program Directors' Meeting
The NIGMS Minority Opportunities in Research (MORE) Division recently brought together directors of its research and training programs at minority institutions for a 5-day meeting. Participants were able to network, attend a variety of workshops and demonstrations, and learn about funding opportunities from NIGMS and other NIH components.
The meeting, which hosted more than 450 participants including 45 university presidents, was described by NIGMS director Dr. Marvin Cassman as an "opportunity to exchange information and address concerns and issues" in order to meet the MORE division's goal -- increasing the number of underrepresented minorities engaged in biomedical research.
