The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) invites eligible junior faculty members and transitioning post-doctoral fellows under-represented in the biomedical workforce to apply to the 2016 Research inImplementation Sciences for Equity (RISE) Program Summer Institute. The all-expenses paid opportunity is an initiative of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE). UCSF RISE is designed to train competitive scientists and enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce. Scientific research concentrated in diverse interests is particularly important for further discovery in heart, lung, and blood diseases that disproportionately affect underrepresented minority populations.
The Summer Institute has two training goals:Implementation Science (ImS) and Careers-In-Progress (CIP). Focused on multi-disciplinary theories and methods, ImS is a major initiative of NIH research and is dedicated to promoting theory-informed approaches to create evidence-based interventions for diverse practice settings. The CIP sessions are skills-based and feature grant writing, manuscript and Individual Development Plans (IDP) training with a thorough overview of NIH funding opportunities.
The two-week RISE Summer Institute featuring ImS and CIP will be hosted by UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations at San Francisco General Hospital July 13-29, 2016
