Diversity supplements support the research experiences of individuals from diverse backgrounds from high school to the faculty level. The supplements allow program directors and principal investigators holding research grants to apply for funds to recruit and support students, post doctorates, and eligible investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research.
This seminar convened experts from several NIH institutes who shared data demonstrating the impact of diversity supplements over time. External experts also shared their perspective on diversity supplements.
