UCSF’s project Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) is a part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (NHLBI-PRIDE). RISE is an all-expenses paid opportunity designed to train competitive scientists and enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce. The program involves a two-week RISE Summer Institute, focused on implementation science and career mentoring, which is hosted by UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations from July 9 -21, 2017 in San Francisco (a second summer institute will be held the following summer as well).
Applications are currently being accepted from researchers at any UC campus, and the program is expected to fill by the end of March. They are encouraging interested junior faculty to complete their applications as soon as possible. Rolling Admissions since March 2017.
