Florida International University


The Research Center in Minority Institutions at Miami-Dade’s Florida International University (FIU-RCMI) is supported by the largest NIH Award in the history of FIU. The scientific focus areas of the FIU-RCMI are, basic biomedical research, behavioral research and population science, and clinical/health services research. With supplemental research funding, the hiring of new investigators, and the growth of our pilot studies and Community Research Enhancement Grant programs, FIU-RCMI research concentrations have grown to include behavioral, clinical, population, and basic biomedical research regarding Alzheimer’s Disease, COVID-19, app-based HIV prevention, farmworker agrochemical exposure, and precision cancer therapeutics.
