Researcher Roundtable: NIH Administrative Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research

Open to Penn Affiliates

12:00p.m. – 1:00p.m. ET October 20, 2023 Virtual Event

Substantial funds are available from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for administrative supplements to enhance the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting students, postdoctorates, and eligible investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research. This resource is often underutilized and many eligible Principal Investigators and potential candidates for support are not aware that this funding mechanism is available. Join us for a discussion with panelists from the National Institute on Aging (NIH/NIA) and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIH/NIMHD) about why these supplements are important, how to submit a competitive application as both a Principal Investigator and/or candidate for support, and institute-specific clarification about what happens after you apply.
