It is anticipated that applications for this initiative will have applicability to human research and will ultimately be tested in human systems (through epidemiological studies, association studies in cohort or case-control studies, human cell culture studies, or human clinical or experimental studies. This program will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsors offer support for research that will test assumptions regarding the effectiveness of interventions that are intended to increase interest, motivation and preparedness for careers in biomedical research, with a particular interest in those interventions specifically designed to increase the number of underrepresented minority students entering careers in biomedical and behavioral research. Since it is likely that comparable interventions are applicable to students universally, the proposed research need not be restricted to underrepresented minority students. Indeed, comparative research may well be particularly illuminating and is, therefore, encouraged. This program will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.
