Information session this Friday, Aug. 23, 10 – 11 a.m.
Rahn Building, G226
The UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI) is inviting Letters of Interest from individuals in groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research who could benefit from a new program aimed at increasing diversity in the field.
The program is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program. It includes two components:
- Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-18-906.html)
- Research Supplements to Promote Re-Entry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers (https://ncats.nih.gov/ctsa/funding/pa-2016-guidance).
The diversity supplement is designed for individuals from groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences, including racial and ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities and individuals from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds who have been inhibited in their ability to pursue a career in health-related research.
The re-entry supplement would benefit those whose research careers were interrupted for at least one year, but no more than eight years, for reasons such as child rearing, injury of the candidate or family member, pursuit of another career for financial reasons, and military service.
