NIH funds biomedical sciences training for minority and underrepresented students

I am happy to report the NIH has renewed the Phase III of the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) Program to continue providing opportunities for research training and career development for minority and under-served students. The IMSD is a program that evolved out of a body of work lead by former BioDistrict Commissioner Dr. Wayne Riley, President & Chief Executive Officer at Meharry Medical College who was a member of the NIH Task Force on Workforce Development for Minority and Under-served Students. I believe this is a real opportunity for Louisiana to build and develop partnerships with training programs and increase minority representation in the Innovation Economy.

I am thrilled to report that LSU received a $2million Grant from the IMSD Program.
