ReBUILDetroit funded five pilot, collaborative and course development projects submitted by investigators across partner institutions as part of a competitive granting process this month. Pilot awards totaled nearly $125,000, and are part of the five-year, $21MM ReBUILDetroit grant funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

A team comprised of faculty and administrators from University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University and Marygrove College developed and disseminated the Request for Proposals in Fall 2016. Investigators from all three partner institutions were eligible to submit. The team solicited external reviewers who provided detailed feedback to investigators. Based on reviewer comments, recommended proposals were sent to the NIH for final review and approval. The following grants have been approved by the NIH:

Course Development Grants

Collaborative and Pilot Grants

The long-term objective of the ReBUILDetroit project (Research Enrichment Building Undergraduate Infrastructure Leading to Diversity) is to align institutions and faculty from University of Detroit Mercy, Marygrove College and Wayne State University to support the development of innovative undergraduate research training programs that eventually will increase the number of undergraduate and underrepresented students pursuing biomedical, behavioral, social, and clinical research careers. The grant is currently in its third year.


The Diversity Program Consortium Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA is supported by Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health / National Institutes of General Medical Sciences under award number U54GM119024.
