Mark your calendar: Diversity Supplement Seminar October 7, 4-5 pm

NIH has developed a mechanism to support diversity candidates interested in or developing their research career, including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, by providing a supplement mechanism on top of funded grants, either at the time of initial submission or after funding award notice has occurred. Learn more about this funding mechanism from faculty who have been successful in receiving these as well as one of our faculty who applied and was awarded a diversity supplement and how it helped launch her research career. 

The panel includes:

  • David Dzewaltowski, College of Public Health
  • Regina Idoate, College of Public Health
  • Paul Trippier, College of Pharmacy
  • Todd Wyatt, College of Medicine/College of Public Health
