Men as Underrepresented Investigators

The NIH defines underrepresented researchers for the purposes of administrative grant supplements as individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities; and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds that have inhibited their ability to pursue a career in health-related research.

The National Institute of Nursing Research has added a new class of underrepresented investigators: men. Thus, for the purposes of all training and career development awards, as well as for requests for supplemental support of underrepresented populations, NINR will now consider a male nurse as underrepresented, regardless of racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic background. Please note that while the NINR accepts grant applications for research mechanisms from individuals with any qualified background (not just nursing), they only award career development and fellowship grants to applicants with a nursing degree.

    Hello:
    I started a project ten years ago to develop my ideas to improve patient care. I am searching for help to develop them clinically. The silence is disheartening.
    I hope that you would be kind enough to read about these ideas on my Blog at:

    Thanks for your kindness.
