RIMI Program at Tougaloo College

The purpose of the funded Research Infrastructure in Minority Institutions (RIMI) program is to enhance Tougaloo College’s biomedical research infrastructure and to provide expanded opportunities for minorities students and faculty in biomedical research. The RIMI grant is a research capacity-building grant and has provided the essential catalyst to transform Tougaloo College into a competitive research institution. The overall objectives of the TC-RIMI program are:
