NRMN-CAN:  National Research Mentoring Network-CIC Academic Network 



The NIH-funded National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) – CIC Academic Network (CAN) initiative addresses the need for greater diversity in the biomedical academic research workforce across the country and is designed to support the academic career path of researchers from underrepresented backgrounds.

NRMN-CAN provides professional development, grantwriting, and mentor training to Early Stage Investigators from underrepresented populations in the biomedical workforce and assists mentors in developing core competencies for mentor facilitating and grantwriting coaching.

More information about the NRMN-CAN program can be found on our About NRMN-CAN and NRMN-CAN Activities pages.
