Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE)

The Programs to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) is an all-expense-paid Summer Institute, research education and mentoring initiative sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). This Summer Institute initiative addresses the difficulties experienced by junior investigators and transitioning postdoctoral scientists in establishing independent academic research careers and negotiating through the academic ranks. The primary outcome of this program is to increase the number of scientists and research-oriented faculty who are from backgrounds currently under-represented in the biomedical sciences and those with disabilities, by preparing them to successfully compete for external funding for scientific research in heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders.

An all expenses paid research career-advancing opportunity supported by NHLBI.

Nine Summer Institutes with mentored research training programs address difficulties in establishing independent research programs and in negotiating academic ranks.

Desired outcome is to improve recruitment and retention of faculty from disabled or underrepresented groups in heart, lung, blood, and sleep studies.

Training Includes:

  • Didactic courses

  • Grant writing and grantsmanship courses

  • Special topic conferences and lab skills

  • Mentoring networks

  • Small Research Project (SRP)
