The objective of the PRIDE Academy: Impact of Ancestry and Gender on Omics of Lung Diseases program (AGOLD) at the University of Colorado Denver/Anschutz Medical Campus is to provide junior faculty members with the skills to use ancestry and gender in interpretation of omics datasets when making inferences about susceptibility to pulmonary diseases such as asthma and pulmonary fibrosis. The training will utilize a holistic approach that includes didactic courses and behavioral and social science cognitive interventions to enhance success in academic medicine.


The primary objective of the Advanced Respiratory Research for Equity program is to provide mentored research training in an interprofessional environment to qualified candidates from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical sciences, who are committed to addressing Lung health disparities through impactful basic (T0) to full spectrum of translational (T1-T4) research.


The goal of the Behavioral Medicine and Sleep Disorders Training Institute is to develop and sustain a network of minority faculty committed to pursuing careers in behavioral and sleep medicine targeted at cardiovascular (CV) risk reduction.


The primary objective of the Summer Institute in Cardiovascular Disease Comorbidities, Genetics and Epidemiology is to provide junior-level faculty and scientists, with backgrounds that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and/or who have a disability, with all-expenses paid training and mentoring, so that they can competently and effectively develop independent research programs of cutting-edge Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep (HLBS) disorders.


The goal of the PRIDE-CVD Summer Institute at State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate Medical Center is to instruct scientists/clinicians in multidisciplinary approaches to research in cardiovascular health disparities.


The goals of the UC San Diego Future Faculty of Cardiovascular Sciences (FOCUS) Summer Institute are to provide strong mentorship, enhance critical academic and grant writing skills and the development of cardiovascular research to improve the long-term success of early career faculty and transitioning postdoctoral scholars from groups underrepresented in the biomedical workforce.


The Summer Institute hosted by Augusta University (AU) aims to enhance basic and clinical/translational research skills using functional and translational genomics techniques. The goal of this program is to train junior-level faculty to do research related to blood disorders such as hemoglobinopathies, white blood cell and platelet diseases.


Obesity Health Disparities PRIDE is an evidence-based, culturally- and environmentally-relevant research training and mentoring program focusing on obesity prevention and treatment, including community-based interventions. Early career faculty and transitioning postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented backgrounds who are graduates of, or are currently employed at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are eligible to apply.


The overarching goals of the UCSF Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) Program are to train and sustain scholars underrepresented in biomedical sciences for long-term success in academic careers pursuing innovative research of interest to the NHLBI. The RISE Summer Institute’s goal is to provide methodological training on Implementation Science (ImS), a set of methodologies that aligns well with research priorities of NHLBI and will enhance the ability of scholars underrepresented in biomedical sciences to conduct innovative research and compete successfully for NIH resources.

Coordination Core

The Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research, collectively referred to as PRIDE, were established to provide junior scientists, whose backgrounds are currently underrepresented in biomedical research, with opportunities to gain the knowledge and tools they need to carry out independent and meaningful research and advance their careers. This initiative is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
