NRMN Seeking Applicants for Grant Proposal Writing & Professional Development Coaching Groups
The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) recently announced a new “R01 Resubmission” Grant Proposal Writing Coaching Group, designed for individuals who are resubmitting an R01 (investigator-initiated) grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the spring and summer of 2017. A “nationwide consortium of biomedical professionals and institutions collaborating to provide all trainees across the biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences with evidence-based mentorship and professional development programming that emphasizes the benefits and challenges of diversity, inclusivity and culture within mentoring relationships, and more broadly the research workforce,” NRMN’s specific goal is to enhance the diversity of the NIH-funded research workforce. NRMN, along with the Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) program and the Coordination and Evaluation Center (CEC) make up the integrated platforms of the NIH Diversity Program Consortium. Applications are being accepted through November 16.
