The Howard University RCMI Program

The Howard University Research Centers Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program focuses on the enhancement and development of necessary research infrastructure that will ensure Howard University’s ability to contribute to the resolution of those diseases which disproportionately affect disadvantaged and minority populations.

Our Vision & Goals


Howard University’s role as a major comprehensive metropolitan research university is embedded in its research goals which are to “investigate diseases that disproportionately affect African Americans” and “encourage multi-disciplinary approaches to research.”

Critical to these goals is research on minority health and health disparities.


The HU RCMI Program functions as an essential partner in realizing the institution’s research goals, and aims to provide the following resources in the support of biomedical, translational, and clinical research

The Howard University Research Centers in Minority (RCMI) Program is supported by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under Award Number 2U54MD007597.
