Description: 

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has established a Biomedical Research Training Program for Individuals from Underrepresented Groups (BRTPUG) that offers opportunities for underrepresented undergraduate, post baccalaureate individuals, and graduate students to receive training in fundamental biomedical sciences and clinical research disciplines. The purpose of BRTPUG is to provide research training opportunities to individuals from health disparities groups that are underrepresented in health-related research. Nationally, these groups include but are not limited to, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. Individuals with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds are also underrepresented in health-related research. The Program supports students that will pursue basic science, clinical, biomedical or behavioral health research careers including clinical and laboratory medicine, epidemiology, and biostatistics as applied to the etiology and treatment of heart, blood vessel, lung, and blood diseases, and sleep disorders. Increasing diversity in the future research workforce may contribute ultimately to the elimination of health disparities in cardiovascular, lung, and blood diseases, and sleep disorders in the U.S.
