The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) invites
post-doctoral/post-residency trainees and junior faculty to apply for the next Grant Proposal Writing and Professional Development opportunity:
Grant writing for Underrepresented Minorities Seminar:
Help, Opportunity, Experience (GUMSHOE)
GUMSHOE is one of four professional development-training programs that is committed to increasing the number of people from diverse backgrounds successfully obtaining NIH grants. It is hosted by the University of Colorado Denver and Washington State University.
GUMSHOE will link mentors from various disciplines who have highly successful track records in obtaining federal funding and grant writing coaches with early career faculty mentees from traditionally underserved and/or underrepresented minorities who wish to prepare an application to National Institutes of Health to conduct biomedical research. GUMSHOE will use a model based on innovation, best practices, and convene cohorts of junior faculty working with specific underserved and underrepresented populations.
Fall 2015-Winter 2016 GUMSHOE Details:
Dates: October 21-23, 2015 kick-off in Denver, Colorado, followed by distance communication and mentoring over the subsequent 6-months
Population of Focus: American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Other Pacific Islanders
Application Deadline: Monday, September 7 at 5:00 p.m. PST

The National Institutes of Health-funded NRMN was created to address the unmet need for greater diversity in the biomedical and biobehavioral research workforce.
The NRMN is offering a series of four intensive coaching programs to support investigators from underrepresented populations who are at a later training stage, specifically postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. These programs are designed to enhance participants’ career development, preparing them to meet each program’s ultimate goal: the submission of strong research and research career development proposals for funding in the biomedical or biobehavioral sciences.
