Minority Health Research Training (MHRT) Program

The Minority Health Research Training (MHRT) Program is funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institutes of Health, and has been in existence at UAB since 1995. The program provides training for 10-14 undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, or pre-doctoral students in Public Health/Biomedical Research at UAB and at world-renowned medical and research institutions in Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Cameroon), Asia (Nepal, Indonesia), Latin America (Peru), and the Caribbean (Jamaica). It provides students with a monthly stipend at the NIH rate for 3 months (usually mid-May to early August) while the students conduct research with MHRT mentors. It also pays airfare, vaccination and visa fees, living allowance and research expenses for students while they are on the field. After students conduct the research, they work with MHRT mentors in publishing the research in a peer-reviewed scientific journal and in presenting their work at a scientific conference paid by MHRT. The website for the program with eligibility criteria and the application form is https://sites.uab.edu/mhirt/. Mentors will need to submit a copy of their CV, the research protocol and IRB approvals from both the foreign and US ethical review committees. It will be good for you to recruit health disparity students from your institution and ask them to apply to the program as quickly as possible (a flyer is attached). Please let me know if you have questions. I have copied Ms. Sarah Franklin who is the Program Coordinator. I look forward to hearing from you

Re: Mass recruitment emails to all OHIO faculty, staff or students

Researchers who would like to send mass recruitment emails to OHIO faculty, staff and/or students must do so through the university’s communications and marketing department using their project request form.

When they receive your request and text, they will format the email within Emma and send you a PDF copy that you can submit to the IRB for review. Once you have IRB approval, notify UCM and they will distribute the email. It is recommended to reach out to UCM prior to submitting to the IRB. If your project has already been approved and you need to send a mass email university-wide, you will need to submit an IRB amendment and upload the PDF copy so that compliance can review the email. Currently, compliance has been quickly approving these amendments.
