RTRN Small Grants Program – LOI Deadline January 30, 2015

A long-term strategic goal of the RCMI Translational Research Network (RTRN) is to improve minority health and to reduce ethnic and geographic disparities in health. To achieve this goal, RTRN promotes synergy and coordinates the considerable multidisciplinary talents of basic, clinical and community researchers to gain new knowledge about the social, economic, behavioral, cultural, environmental, epigenetic and genetic determinants of health disparities. A continuing initiative, administered by the Research Coordinating Center (RCC) with support from the Data Coordinating Center (DCC), is the RTRN Small Grants Program, which provides modest funding for short-term, self-contained clinical and translational research projects, including feasibility studies, secondary analysis of existing data, and development of research methodology and technology, that involve collaborative partnerships across the 18 RCMI grantee institutions.
