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
