Through a variety of programs, NRMN is developing a national network of mentors and mentees from all biomedical disciplines relevant to the NIH mission. These provide mentorship, professional development, mentor/mentee training and networking opportunities to individuals from the undergraduate to early career faculty levels. NRMN established a nationwide resource composed of five regional hubs that provide support for mentors and mentees in both urban and rural settings. The regions are: Northeast/Mid-Atlantic/Islands, Southeast/Deep South, Midwest, South and West/Great Plains.
NRMN's programming includes an active schedule of online webinars, mentor training sessions, professional networking opportunities and seminars. Visit the
NRMN website to look for upcoming events, and follow them on social media @NRMNet.
NRMN Phase II will begin in fall of 2019. This new cycle of the NRMN initiative will continue to develop mentoring and networking opportunities for biomedical researchers from diverse backgrounds, from undergraduates through early career faculty. To broaden the number of innovative strategies explored and increase the likelihood of impact, sustainability, and dissemination, NRMN Phase II will be organized as a consortium of independent research projects, a Resource Center, and a Coordination Center.
Up to 15 awards will be issued for the independent research projects (RFA-RM-18-004). These projects will explore three primary areas of interventions intended to enhance mentoring and networking: The science of mentorship; professional networks; and, navigation of critical transition points.
The NRMN Coordination Center (RFA-RM-18-003) and the NRMN Resource Center (RFA-RM-18-002) will work with the independent research projects to enhance dissemination and to promote synergies to provide evidence and resources for effective mentoring. The NRMN Coordination Center will coordinate data collection and storage with the Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA (CEC), and build upon and improve instruments and processes developed in the first funding period. The NRMN research is expected to align with the
hallmarks of success that were defined by the Diversity Program Consortium during Phase I.
In FY 2014, one NRMN award was issued, which includes five core partner institutions:
To accomplish the national scope of this initiative, NRMN actively collaborates with over 100 scientific and professional society partners, health-serving organizations and organizations that support students underrepresented in biomedical science.

To enhance the scope and reach of the NRMN network,
seven supplement awards and five pilot project awards were awarded from the Administrative Core in 2015.
