The purpose of the Clinical Research Education and Career Development (CRECD) Program is to expand the national capability to improve diversity for research in the health sciences by developing the research workforce in clinical and translational sciences though providing grant support to minority institutions that offer doctorate degrees in the health professions or in a health-related science. These institutions historically have trained professionals from diverse backgrounds who provide health care to minority populations and are uniquely positioned to engage these populations in research and in the translation of research advances into culturally appropriate, measurable and sustained improvements in health outcomes.
