The EIAP aims to enhance professional skills, guide preparation of an R01 grant application, provide access to a mentoring and peer network, and grow a community of emerging, diverse researchers from across the country.

Cohort members will provide peer support for each other both during and beyond their participation in the program. Dr. Mailhot Vega (right) will attend seminars, workshops, and other EIAP-sponsored activities. Scholars will also have the opportunity to connect with multiple mentors, including established investigators, scientists in different sectors as well as near-peer and peer mentors. Activities will be held for each EIAP cohort to encourage peer mentoring and community building.
