Investigator Development Core

The goal of the IDC is to support the first two aims of the RCMAR programs: 1) Increasing the number of researchers who focus on the health of minority elders; and 2) Enhancing the diversity in the professional workforce by mentoring minority academic researchers for careers in minority elder health research.


A major RCMAR goal is to increase the number of researchers who focus on minority aging health and to enhance the diversity of the scientific workforce through mentorship in research skills and career development. Mentoring is the primary responsibility of the Investigator Development Core (IDC), which works with junior faculty who are referred to as RCMAR Scholars .
