About the CHER Institute
The CHER Institute at California State University, Long Beach is an NIGMS funded project seeking to increase the number of early career faculty members who are well prepared to become NIH principal investigators in the field of community-based health equity research, with particular emphasis on faculty from MSIs.

Each year the CHER Institute offers:

  • An intensive educational and mentoring experience for 15 early career faculty members during a six-day, on-site training focused on theory-based, culturally informed methods for effective community engagement in health equity research with the purpose of developing a Specific Aims page for an NIH research proposal.
  • Four to six single topic webinars annually addressing topics in health equity research.
