The UNC NORC Pilot & Feasibility (P&F) Program recently received funding from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to establish a process designed to increase the number of new investigators from underrepresented minority (URM) groups who become established investigators in nutrition and obesity research.

To achieve this critical goal, the P&F Program is working with K. Sean Kimbro, PhD, professor of biology and biomedical sciences at North Carolina Central University (NCCU), to develop a mentoring and research collaboration to promote the career development of URM investigators. Located in Durham, North Carolina, NCCU is one of the region’s historically black colleges or universities (HBCU).
