Below are several programs/activities conducted through LAUNCH. Please contact Montez Lane (336-713-50166 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in learning more about these programs.
The NIH Research Supplement to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research is a long-standing program specifically designed to:
- diversify the biomedical workforce;
- facilitate the recruitment of the most talented researchers from all racial/ethnic groups;
- improve the quality of educational and training environments
The LAUNCH Diversity Supplement Program matches interested faculty members with NIH grants eligible for diversity supplements with early career faculty who meet NIH eligibility requirements for the Diversity Supplement Program (early career faculty from underrepresented groups). MACHE staff works in collaboration with the Office of Research, to assist faculty applicants to develop competitive grant proposals, provide critical reviews of applications, and provide a letter indicating institutional support and available resources for the applicant. MACHE staff will maintain involvement through periodic follow up meetings for recipients and their senior mentors.
CCMs are collaborative, co-mentoring forums that bring together early career faculty with content and methodological experts from multiple disciplines to engage in creative discussions regarding key elements of the research process. The modules are designed to provide support for early career investigators to develop competitive grant proposals.
