Please see the announcement below regarding NIDCD’s Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-21-071.html):
“This is a great opportunity for participants from diverse backgrounds to join a research investigator funded by NIDCD. NIDCD’s investigators cover seven (7) research areas: hearing, balance, voice, speech, language, taste, and smell. Thus, there are multiple opportunities to participate in our research based on interests and future plans of a student or junior faculty member. Interested individuals can use the NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (https://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter.cfm) to learn more about NIDCD funded projects and investigators. Just search for NIDCD and enter research interest words. The Tool will provide the funded projects, name of the principal investigator(s), institution, and state, and a summary of the project. It is a great way of matching research interests with NIDCD research!
NIDCD’s priority for participants in the diversity supplement program is predoctoral, postdoctoral, and faculty / early investigators (with little or no research experience or transitioning to new research fields). Per the announcement it is the institution who determines, justifies and confirms eligibility. Also, it is the principal investigator of the NIDCD-funded award who prepares the supplement application together with the candidate.”
