Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Interdisciplinary Research Leaders

Interdisciplinary Research Leaders (IRL) is a three-year national leadership development program that aims to foster and support new interdisciplinary, action-oriented research collaborations. Achieving health equity—especially for communities of color, those in low socioeconomic positions, and Native populations—is a core value of the program.

Fellows in this national leadership program are researchers and community partners working together in three-person teams. Teams will generate high-quality, community-engaged research useful for dismantling structural racism and improving health and health equity.

Applicants should focus on one of the two subthemes: structural racism in health care and structural racism and community health and well-being.
