Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program (RCMI)
Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program
SDSU HealthLINK Center is a participating program of the Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. As such, it is part of the RCMI Research Translation Network.
The Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program develops and strengthens the research infrastructure necessary to conduct state-of-the-art biomedical research and foster the next generation of researchers from underrepresented populations. The RCMI program provides grants to institutions that award doctoral degrees in the health professions or health-related sciences and have a historical and current commitment to serving students from underrepresented populations.
The RCMI program supports NIMHD’s vision to advance the science of minority health and health disparities research by enabling all investigators within the program the opportunity to engage in rigorous, mentored research experiences focused on diseases that disproportionately affect minority and other health disparity populations.
