The course is followed up with a laboratory based research experience for up to 3 months for select students to generate preliminary data for grant applications focused on problems in NeuroAIDS. Recently, a third enhancement to the program was developed in which pilot grants in the amount of $20,000 are awarded after competitive review of applications. Funding through the NIMH R25 Grant program supports the training of under-represented minority graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty as well as individuals who are not members of minority groups but are engaged in diversity related research. (NIMH Grant #5R25MH080661-02).
