The 2021 National Conference of the RCMI Consortium is a forum to present the exciting science of RCMI funded investigators, including early-stage investigators. Concurrent Workshops will engage directors and program staff from Investigator Development, Community Engagement, Research Infrastructure, Administrative and Evaluation Cores, who will work together to develop Common Metrics to measure and track progress and programmatic outcomes of the RCMI U54 Centers. The National Research Mentoring Network and the Cardiovascular Implementation Science Registry will also present workshops.

Target Audience

The 2021 Conference attendees represent the RCMI Programs and their collaborators and community partners. This year's conference will allow participants to showcase science, share models and best practices to coordinate across objectives, provide networking opportunities for “birds-of-a-feather” investigators. Junior investigators will present their projects, and poster sessions will be organized around the three categories of research supported by the RCMI program: basic biomedical science, behavioral science, and clinical science / health services.
