Purpose

The Network of Minority Health Research Investigators (NMRI) is a network that is "owned" by its members and supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

More than 300 researchers have participated in NMRI workshops in the past decade, and that number continues to grow.
