Diversity Program Awardees Announced!

The National Institutes of Health has awarded nearly $31 million in fiscal year 2014 funds to develop new approaches that engage researchers, including those from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical sciences and help them thrive in the NIH-funded workforce. Collectively, these awardees will establish a national consortium to develop, implement, and evaluate approaches to encourage individuals to start and stay in biomedical research careers.
