Proposed Collection: Title: Training Tomorrow’s Scientists: Linking Minorities and Mentors Through the Web. Type of Information Collection Request: REVISION, OMB control number 0925–0475, Expiration Date 3/31/3005. Need and Use of Information Collection: This Web site allows federally-funded researchers supported by any of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the NIH to submit an electronic form describing his or her research areas, as well as interests in mentoring minority students or junior faculty. The researcher’s description is posted on the Web site for searching by interested minority applicants. Minority students or junior faculty search the Web site to identify researchers with whom they would like to work. The research projects in the database are located all over the country and involve cutting edge research activities by scientists funded through the Institutes and Centers of the NIH. These research projects range from studies of children to research on older adults, from laboratory research to field research, from social research to a combination of biological and behavioral research. Applicants conduct an electronic search using categories such as research areas of interest, desired geographic location of the researcher, and their level of education. The primary objective of the program is to ensure that, in the coming decades, a concentration of minority researchers will be available to address behavioral and social factors important in improving the public health and eliminating racial disparities. Increasing the number of minority scientists in the U.S. will expand our currently limited knowledge about the epidemiology and treatment of diseases in minority population. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Type of Respondents: Students, Post-doctorals, Junior Faculty, and Principal Investigators. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 400; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours per Response: 10 minutes; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 148.
