RFA-MD-20-007: Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Coordinating Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The national Research Centers in Minority Institutions Coordinating Center (CC) works closely with key personnel at all RCMI Specialized Centers and NIMHD to help the centers collectively achieve their objectives to:

  • Enhance institutional research capacity within the areas of basic biomedical, behavioral, and/or clinical research
  • Enable all levels of investigators to become more successful in obtaining competitive extramural support, especially from NIH, particularly on diseases that disproportionately impact minority and other populations experiencing health disparities
  • Foster environments conducive to career enhancement with a special emphasis on development of early career investigators
  • Enhance the quality of all scientific inquiry and promote research on minority health and health disparities
  • Establish sustainable relationships with community-based organizations that partner with RCMI centers

The RCMI CC will be responsive to requests generated by RCMI site key personnel, NIMHD, NIH, the scientific community, and the general public. Note: Eligible applicant institutions for this FOA are limited to recipients of RCMI awards through RFA-MD-17-003, RFA-MD-17-006, RFA-MD-18-012, or PAR-11-132.
