We are dedicated to the training and career enhancement of investigators in minority health and health disparities research. Our Center hosts a Pilot Project and Mentorship Program that supports junior investigators at SDSU with funding and mentorship in developing their programs of research. Our Investigator Development Team also hosts career enhancement events that are open to the public.
Pilot Project and Mentorship Program
Our Investigator Development Team oversees the SDSU HealthLINK Center’s Pilot Project and Mentorship Program that competitively awards pilot project funding to eligible junior investigators at SDSU. Awardees also participate in a 12-month mentorship program to equip them to successfully compete for independent extramural research funding for minority health and health disparities research. To-date, we have awarded funding to 11 SDSU junior investigators, including six in our Cycle 1 pool. The application periods for our Center’s Pilot Project and Mentoring Program are now closed.
Career Enhancement Events
Our career enhancement events provide learning opportunities to help advance careers in minority health and health disparities research. These opportunities provide attendees with skills-based trainings in evidence-based and novel approaches to research.
