MEPI Junior Faculty Research Training

Status: No plans to recompete at this time


Program Overview

Through the program Research Training for Career Development of Junior Faculty in Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) Institutions, the NIH is supporting research training programs for junior faculty in institutions supported by the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) to strengthen their capacity to participate in and carry out locally relevant research that contributes to improved human health, and to foster the next generation of faculty researchers in Africa.

The MEPI Junior Faculty Research Training program aims to support grantee institutions to strengthen their research culture so that they can better support their junior faculty to be more successful in participating in research both as collaborators with others and as independent researchers.

It is expected that increased research opportunities can add to the sustainability and quality of the original MEPI program to strengthen medical education, promote faculty retention, and lead to the acquisition of new knowledge that contributes to improved human health. Furthermore, these institutions and faculty will serve as role models for strengthening the research culture at other African institutions.

The program supports eleven African academic institutions in eight countries with a network of national, regional, U.S. and other international collaborators. The 5-year grant awards started in September 2015.
