The mission of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) is to support research into the causes, treatments, and prevention of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases; the training of basic and clinical scientists to carry out this research; and the dissemination of information on research progress in these diseases.
NIAMS participates in opportunities which are intended to enhance the diversity of the extramural biomedical research workforce by supporting the research or training of individuals from population groups that have been shown to be nationally underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research workforce. Such populations include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, women at senior faculty levels, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
