The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke’s efforts on diversifying the neuroscience research workforce

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Research innovation that leads to discovery in the battle against neurological disease and disorders requires diverse ideas. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, one of the National Institutes of Health's 27 institutes and centers, strives to reduce the burden of neurological disease and disorders. The National Institutes of Neurologic Disorders and Stroke is very interested in increasing the diversity of researchers by addressing the existing barriers responsible for the low numbers of underrepresented populations from traditionally minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and non-minority serving institutions (non-MSIs). This commentary provides insight on the persistent underrepresentation of racial/ethnic minorities entering neuroscience research careers paths, focusing on multiples levels within the scientific academy and the supportive role that both MSIs and non-MSIs play in increasing diversity in the biomedical research workforce.
