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). Its success begins with the dedication of senior investigators to mentor and serve as role models for junior investigators and continues with the participation of active members and the recruitment of new members. More than 300 researchers have participated in NMRI workshops in the past decade, and that number continues to grow.
