Diversity in Aging Research Pipeline Program

The Training Office, within the Office of the Scientific Director, has developed a pilot program to enhance diversity within the NIA intramural research program and eventually within the biomedical research workforce.  The Diversity in Aging Research Pipeline Program (DARPP), is a multi-entry pipeline program to develop and expose underrepresented minorities and socioeconomically disadvantaged students to aging research.  Students will participate in ongoing NIH Training Programs to enter the pipeline and receive training from an NIA/IRP scientists in a highly mentored, structured environment.  Long-term support and follow through will be provided to students as they matriculate through the various levels of education.  We believe that this unique learning experience is for students who will soon evolve into our next generation of aging researchers.
