Research Infrastructure in Minority Institutions (Rimi): Predominately minority-serving colleges and universities, institutions with a racial and ethnic minority student enrollment of 50 percent or greater, play an important role in the early training of minority scientists. Accordingly, the current RFA represents a National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) effort to enable such institutions to continue their participation in the training of underrepresented racial/ethnic minority scientists in the 21st century. The mission of NCMHD is to promote minority health and to support programs that aim to reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities. In this effort NCMHD supports basic, clinical, social, and behavioral research, promote research infrastructure and training, foster emerging programs, disseminate information, and reach out to minority and other health disparity communities. The Research Infrastructure in Minority Institutions (RIMI) Program focuses on building research capacity in predominantly minority-serving academic institutions that offer one or more baccalaureate and/or master's degrees in the life sciences and other areas related to health. The RIMI program seeks to facilitate the integration of teaching and research at predominantly minority-serving institutions with the ultimate aims of: 1) developing sustainable research programs and 2) enhancing the overall quality of the educational experience for the students in the life sciences and related areas. The application receipt date is May 16, 2003. This announcement (RFA-MD-03-005) solicits only Phase II RIMI applications; solicitations for Phase I applications have been discontinued. The overarching objectives of the Phase II RIMI initiative are to: 1) establish an activity that will enhance the institution's biomedical research infrastructure, and (2) utilize collaborative agreements with institutions granting doctoral degrees in the health sciences to encourage and facilitate research and mentoring interactions between the biomedical research faculty in grantee and collaborating institutions. Increased participation of students from the grantee institution in these doctoral programs is expected to be an additional benefit of these collaborations. Such collaborations must be clearly described and documented in the application.
