              Applications are being accepted for the all-expense paid Summer Institute in Cardiovascular Genetic Epidemiology at Washington University in St Louis, School of Medicine. 
              Eligible applicants are research-oriented junior-level faculty members or transitioning post-doctorate trainees from minority groups that are 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 of treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders research; health disparities research; or relevant research methodologies and approaches specific to these areas.
              This mentored program will address the difficulties experienced by junior investigators in establishing independent research programs and negotiating through the academic ranks. The desired outcome is to improve the recruitment and retention of faculty from disabled and underrepresented minority groups in the study of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. 
              Participants meet for 3-week sessions during two consecutive summers, with a short mid-year visit and an Annual Meeting for all PRIDE Mentees and Mentors across 6 programs and the NHLBI. The PRIDE program provides mentor-mentee partnerships with matching based on common research interests.
