The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has distinguished the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras Campus with the prestigious Institutional Award for Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) in Biomedical Research.
The NIH Office of Scientific Workforce Diversity (COSWD) announced the ten recipients of the NIH Institutional Award for Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) in Biomedical Research. In April 2023, the NIH launched the DEIA Award Competition to recognize transformative projects and processes developed by institutions of higher education that promote inclusive excellence and foster environments that advance an institutional culture based on diversity and equity.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 summer internship programs in biomedical research at the NIH. Internships generally cover a minimum of eight weeks, with students arriving at the NIH in June.
In 2022, we hope to welcome summer interns in-person to our NIH campuses; this is dependent on the course of the coronavirus pandemic and we will update information and the website as soon as we have definitive information.
The members of the NIH HuBMAP Consortium are asking your help to inform undergraduate students at your institution and/or from other relevant listservs about an exciting new virtual internship opportunity in biomedicine for Summer 2021. Please note that the deadline for applications is soon, Feb 15, 2021.
