One of the major goals of the office is to build and sustain a pipeline of researchers from underrepresented populations in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences, with a focus on NIDDK mission areas. The office accomplishes this goal by administering a variety of programs and initiatives to recruit high school through post-doctoral educational level individuals into OMHRC research training and mentor programs: The Short-Term Research Experience for Underrepresented Persons (STEP–UP), the Diversity Summer Research Training Program (DSRTP) for Undergraduate Students, and Network of Minority Health Research Investigators (NMRI), the NIH/ National Medical Association (NMA) Academic Career Fellow Travel Awards, and the NIDDK/National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) Academic Career Fellow Travel Awards. Identification of participants to matriculate into the program and initiatives comes from applications and related forms hosted through the NIDDK website. The proposed information collection activity is necessary in order to determine the eligibility and quality of potential awardees for traineeship in these programs. OMB approval is requested for three (3) years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 3,264.
