UNC is part of a national effort, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Diversity Program Consortium, to identify best mentoring practices for scientists underrepresented in biomedical research.
The PROMISE Study is seeking assistant professors holding MD, PhD, MD/PhD or DO degrees and identify as being from a racially or ethnically underrepresented group, including south Asian, or as multiracial. Participants should be engaged in biomedical research (research on the biological/behavioral processes that advance the diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of disease) and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
The goal of the PROMISE study is to enhance scholarly output of scientists underrepresented in biomedical research. Participants can earn up to $500.
UNC is part of a national effort, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Diversity Program Consortium to identify best mentoring practices for scientists underrepresented (UR) in biomedical research. This study will examine a peer group mentoring approach to enhance scholarly output and academic advancement of participants. Peer groups will meet twice per month for nine months. Sessions are focused on professional development and facilitated by senior UR biomedical researchers.
