Racial Inequities in NIH Grant Funding
Biomedical science and federal funding for scientific research are not immune to the systemic racism that pervades American society. Analysis of NIH grant success rates published in 2011 showed that grant applications submitted to the National Institutes of Health by African-American or Black Principal Investigators (PIs) are less likely to be funded than applications submitted by white PIs. A follow-up study in 2019 showed that this difference had not changed and further showed that topics of interest to Black PIs were less likely to be funded even when proposed by white PIs. Dr. Taffe will review those original reports, the response of the NIH to these issues, and the implications for diversifying the faculty within biomedical research disciplines.
