Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research

This Notice encourages eligible awardees in the BRAIN Initiative community to apply for administrative supplements in response to PA-16-288, "Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research." Program Directors/Principal Investigators (PD/PI) of active BRAIN Initiative research program grants are encouraged to identify individuals from nationally underrepresented groups for support and mentorship under the auspices of this administrative supplement. Individuals from the identified groups are eligible throughout the continuum from high school to the faculty level. The activities proposed in the supplement application must fall within the scope of the parent grant, and both advance the objectives of the parent grant and support the research training and professional development of the supplement candidate. BRAIN Initiative PIs are strongly encouraged to incorporate training activities that will help prepare the supplement candidate to conduct rigorous research relevant to the goals of the BRAIN Initiative 2025 Report.
