Research Centers in Minority Institutions


Major support for the bio-medical research infrastructure of MSM is received through the Research Centers for Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program, sponsored by the National Institutes on Minority Health and Health Disparities. With RCMI funding, state of the art bio-medical research technology cores, shared use facilities, and other resources (e.g., Division of Information Technology Services) at MSM are available to our scientific investigators.


RCMI support has fostered the development of areas of research focus at the MSM (e.g., Cardiovascular Disease, HIV/AIDS, Neuroscience, Reproductive Biology, and Molecular Immunology). MSM's record of research development and the research enterprise is in large part due to the support received from the RCMI Program.
