Promoting Indigenous Research Leadership (PIRL) is a 3 day workshop designed to promote the public health research careers of Indigenous and other early-career faculty working with Indigenous communities across the country.

The workshop will take place November 18-20, 2024 in Tempe, Arizona.

Activities will include:

  • Focused mentoring with senior NIH-funded faculty from across the country and with peers who share similar backgrounds and research interests
  • Presentations from leading experts in Indigenous health
  • One-on-one consultation with program officers from the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and other NIH programs

Eligibility requirements:

  • Must be able to attend the entire workshop in person
  • Hold a doctoral degree and have a faculty appointment or comparable research appointment at a U.S. 2- or 4-year college or university, or at another NIH grant-eligible research organization (postdoctoral fellows are not eligible)
  • Meet the NIH definition for a new investigator
  • Currently working with an American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian community in one or more areas of public health research, or have a stated career goal to do so

Special consideration will be given to applicants who are early stage investigators and faculty who are actively amending a previously submitted NIH research grant application that was not funded.
