NIH PRIDE Program (Summer Training for Underrepresented Junior Faculty)

The PRIDE Summer Institute Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research are now accepting applications. Space is limited for the 2020 mentored summer training programs so apply early!

If you know of colleagues who would benefit from this innovative research training and mentorship opportunity, we urge you to encourage them to Apply.

Who: Eligible applicants are junior-level faculty or scientists with a background that is under-represented in the biomedical or health sciences, and are United States Citizens or Permanent Residents. Research interests should be compatible with those of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders.

What: The PRIDE programs include intensive summer research training experiences across two summers, a mid year meeting, an annual PRIDE conference, and an opportunity to apply for small research project grant funding. Choose from among nine unique Summer Institute programs (see below), each with year-round mentored training opportunities to enhance research skills and promote the scientific and career development of trainees. Trainees will learn effective tips on best practices. Research emphasis varies by program.
