National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities

The National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) 
announces a limited competition for the renewals of Research Infrastructure 
in Minority Institutions (RIMI) Programs.  The receipt of a previous Phase II 
award under the RIMI Program is a pre-requisite for participation in this 
limited competition.  The program was previously administered by the National 
Center for Research Resources and supported by the NCMHD.  All activities 
related to the RIMI program were recently transferred to the NCMHD.  

The RIMI program focuses on building research capacity in predominantly 
minority-serving academic institutions that offer one or more baccalaureate 
and/or master's degrees in the sciences related to health.  The program seeks 
to facilitate the integration of teaching and research with the ultimate aims 
of: 1) developing sustainable research programs and 2) enhancing the quality 
of the educational experience for the students in the life sciences and 
related areas.  Awards under this competition will use the (P20) exploratory 
grant mechanism.  

The NCMHD plans to expand the RIMI Program to include other eligible 
institutions in fiscal year 2003.
