NIMHD Training and Career Development Grant Programs

Achieving diversity in the biomedical research workforce is critical to the full realization of our national research goals. Research shows that diverse teams that capitalize on innovative ideas and distinct perspectives outperform homogeneous teams. The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) encourages and supports the development of a diverse and well-trained research workforce. NIMHD uses several mechanisms to fund training and career development activities at universities and other institutions, to develop and support the next generation of biomedical researchers.
