Northwestern University Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Training (NU-MHRT)

Project: Research project

Description

The proposed training program “Northwestern University Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Training” (NU MHRT) will provide health disparities research training experiences to minority and other underrepresented trainees at the undergraduate through postdoctoral levels. Trainees will be recruited from Northwestern University and consortium partners Northeastern Illinois
University (NEIU) and University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), which are both federally designated minority-serving institutions. Northwestern offers a world class research training environment with state-of-the-art multidisciplinary
and inter-disciplinary research programs in the health sciences. Leveraging our transdisciplinary team of well established research faculty mentors, alongside our strong track record fostering community partnership, engagement, education, outreach and research career development of students from health disparities populations, over 5 years this program will provide mentored research training and immersion experiences, individual career development, and tailored didactic learning opportunities to support the advancement of 50
trainees from health disparities populations to their next stage in health disparities-focused research careers.
