Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The overarching goal of this National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) R25 program is to support mentoring and research education activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce. The major goal of this R25 program is to establish long-term mentoring that will enable junior faculty who are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences as defined by NOT-OD-18-122, to develop a research program and obtain NIH funding. This FOA specifically invites applications from senior faculty, established researchers, and experienced mentors to develop and direct the Summer Institutes of the Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) program in order to mentor promising eligible junior faculty who have specific scientific interests in heart, lung, blood and sleep (HLBS) disorders research.

To accomplish the stated overarching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Research Experiences and Mentoring Activities.

Success of the PRIDE Summer Institute program will be evaluated using the following metrics: aggregate number and demographic characteristics of participants; career progress of participants, including participation in independent research, employment and promotion in a research or research-related field; authorship of scientific publications in a STEM field; and independent research grant support from NIH or another source subsequent to participation in the PRIDE Summer Institute program.

Eligibility Requirements

The PD/PI should be an established investigator in the scientific area in which the application is targeted and capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the proposed program. The PD/PI will be expected to monitor and assess the program and submit all documents and reports as required.

This FOA specifically invites applications from senior faculty, established researchers, and experienced mentors to direct the SIs of the PRIDE program and to provide research education and mentorship experiences for junior faculty who are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences as defined by NOT-OD-18-122. The PD/PI should be an established investigator in the HLBS scientific area to which the application is targeted and capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the PRIDE research education program, or of providing evidence of a team that has these capabilities. The PD/PI team should also have scientific leadership and background in HLBS topic areas, or expertise in specialized research techniques, methodologies or cross-cutting approaches relevant to HLBS scientific areas as evidenced by scientific publications and a record of peer-reviewed scientific support. The PD/PI or the PD/PI team must also have experience and leadership in mentoring and have a strong record of providing research education and mentorship experiences to individuals underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. A PD/PI with strong scientific experience and expertise could partner with a Program Administrator at their institution who has mentorship and leadership experience, or vice versa to fulfill the requirements for leadership of this program.
