The NIH Office of Extramural Programs invites you to visit our new  extramural diversity website, which provides information and resources for the research community.

The site contains resources of interest to students, professors, and institutional leaders including:

  • Why diversity supports the NIH mission and enhances research
  • Strategies for recruitment and retention of individuals from underrepresented backgrounds
  • Approaches to find NIH funding and career success strategies
  • Reports and data on diversity in the biomedical workforce

The website also features links to each NIH Institute and Center’s webpage, which explains their mission and interest in diversity, and the diversity programs they support.

Students can find NIH research training programs, fellowships and career opportunities at multiple career stages, and learn how to use NIH RePORTER and other data systems through Career Pathways tools.

Students can also connect with scientists from underrepresented backgrounds through  Biomedical Faces of Science videos and Meet the NIH-Funded Researchers pages, which highlight research successes and provide career advice from leaders in the field.

Take a moment to explore the website, and consider adding a link or a bookmark to share this information. You may also download a flyer to share with anyone who might be interested in the site’s resources. If you have any questions about the website, or extramural diversity programs, contact us
