  NIH: Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program (G12)

The purpose of the Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program is to expand the national capability for research in the health sciences by providing grant support to minority institutions that offer doctorate degrees in the health professions or in a health-related science. These institutions historically have trained professionals from diverse backgrounds who provide health care to minority populations and are uniquely positioned to engage these populations in research and in the translation of research advances into culturally appropriate, measurable and sustained improvements in health outcomes. The primary goals of the RCMI G12 Centers are to (1) develop research infrastructure to enhance institutional biomedical research capacity; (2) enable investigators to become more successful in obtaining competitive extramural support for the conduct of biomedical and/or behavioral research, particularly on diseases that disproportionately impact minority populations; and (3) foster environments conducive to professional development in the biomedical sciences.

Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by July 22, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
