Health Disparities Research Education Program (HDREP)

Our pipeline continues with postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty who participate in our Health Disparities Research Education Program (HDREP). Scholars are mentored in research training and career development and take courses on bioethics, biostatistics, epidemiology, and minority aging. There is an intensive grant writing retreat during which each participant presents a grant proposal that may be submitted to an external funding agency, and receives critical feedback to increase fundability. Scholars who complete the program requirements may be eligible to apply for pilot funding to start their project.

The program is sponsored by the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Comprehensive Center for Healthy Aging, the MHRC, Creighton University, Morehouse School of Medicine, Tuskegee University, University of Alabama, University of South Alabama, and UAB. Additional support comes from the National Institute on Aging, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, and the National Cancer Institute.
