FASEB MARC Program

FASEB MARC Program

Our key objective is the encouragement, preparation and support of underrepresented students in the pursuit of postgraduate education leading to the PhD, MD/PhD, or other combined professional degree-PhD in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

The Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program was created by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) to increase the number of biomedical and behavioral scientists from underrepresented groups. The overall objective of the MARC Program is to increase the number of scientists from underrepresented groups who are engaged in biomedical research by strengthening the science curricula at minority-serving institutions and increasing the research training opportunities for underrepresented students and faculty. A key objective of the MARC Program is the encouragement, preparation and support of underrepresented students in the pursuit of postgraduate education leading to the Ph.D., M.D.-Ph.D., or other combined professional degree-Ph.D. in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) has supported the training of underrepresented scientists for over 30 years through NIGMS-funded MARC grants. The FASEB Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) grants involve a variety of programs and activities including: - Support for some of the FASEB societies' Diversity Program Initiatives - Travel Awards for Faculty and Students to attend FASEB societies scientific meetings and conferences - Travel Awards for Poster/Oral Presentations (Students and Postdoctoral Fellows) to attend FASEB societies scientific meetings and conferences - Travel Awards for Scientists, Postdoctoral Fellows and Graduate Students from Underrepresented Groups to attend FASEB Summer Research Conferences - Travel/Subsistence Awards for undergraduate students to participate in Summer Research Opportunities Programs at major research institutions and universities - Sponsoring Grantsmanship Training Seminars and Workshops at scientific meetings, during the summer sessions, and on the campuses of minority institutions - Sponsoring Faculty/Student Career Development Seminars at Minority Institutions - Sponsoring career development programs and activities for minority researchers and students during the Experimental Biology and a select group of other FASEB societies' annual meetings

Mission: The primary goal of the FASEB MARC Program is to encourage aspiring research scientists from underrepresented groups to enter careers in research in the biomedical sciences. The program will focus on increasing participation by African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos and Native Americans, but the Program is not limited to those four groups and provisions are made to include others as appropriate. The purpose of the Advisory Board is to assist the FASEB MARC Program in developing, promoting, and revitalizing existing programs and to provide ideas for and input on proposed programs from the perspective of the users of the program.

NOT-RM-19-001: Request for Information (RFI): Institutional Accountability to Promote Inclusive Excellence

NIH Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives is seeking your assistance! NOT-RM-19-001: Request for Information (RFI): Institutional Accountability to Promote Inclusive Excellence.

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit background information and guidance on the development of an NIH Common-Fund program currently in the planning stages. The NIH Office of Strategic Coordination seeks input on institutional and/or programmatic approaches to advance inclusive excellence through institutional change. Our goal is to employ a cohort model at the faculty level as a catalyst for institutions to create a route of entry and advancement for talent from diverse backgrounds, including scholars from groups underrepresented in the biomedical research enterprise. This RFI will assist NIH in identifying, developing, and implementing strategies that will work toward this goal - integral to NIH’s mission to support a diverse research workforce that invites a broad variety of perspectives to address complex scientific problems, more robust learning environments, improved global competitiveness, and enhanced public trust.
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-RM-19-001.html

Responses to this RFI will be accepted through May 16, 2019. All comments will be anonymous and must be submitted via email to [email protected].
