Overview

A strategic goal of the RCMI Translational Research Network (RTRN) is to improve minority health and to reduce ethnic and geographic disparities in health by providing modest funding for inter-institutional clinical and translational science projects across the 18 RCMI grantee institutions. To achieve this goal, a continuing RTRN initiative is the Small Grants Program. For the upcoming funding cycle, clinical and community research proposals on obesity and metabolic syndromes, as well as research on diseases and co-morbidities associated with obesity, are particularly encouraged.
