The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health invites Research Education (R25) applications to promote diversity in undergraduate and health professional participant populations by providing short-term research education support to stimulate career development in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, and sleep disorders research. The overall goal of the program is to provide research opportunities for individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical science, including individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and individuals with disabilities that will significantly contribute to a diverse research workforce in the future. The research opportunities should be of sufficient depth to enable the participants, upon completion of the program, to have a thorough exposure to the principles underlying the conduct of research, and help prepare participants interested in research to pursue competitive fellowships, or other research training or career development awards.
