greatness. Each recipient will receive a one-time cash award of $25,000.
Preference will be given to educators who teach or who taught in the fields

P R I D E: PRograms to Increase
Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research
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.
