N1 - Funding Information: shows the numbers of grant proposals submitted and obtained by mentees before, during, and after training. It is notable that 63% of mentees (33 of the 52) submitted a total of 72 grants; 58% obtained 40 peer-reviewed grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and non-NIH funding agencies. Grants funded by NIH included 6 K-series awards, 2 R01s, 5 R03s, and 1 R34. At the time of this writing, an additional 24 NIH grants from 15 mentees are pending (either under review or under revision) and include 7 K-series awards, 4 R01s, 7 R21s, 4 R03s, and 2 diversity supplements, as well as 8 pending non-NIH grants from 7 mentees (6 AHA and 2 RWF). This is a considerable accomplishment because PRIDE-CVD cohorts 1, 2, and 3 are, respectively, only 3-, 2-, and 1-year out of training. Before joining SIPID/PRIDE-CVD, the 52 mentees had a total of 8 grants (4 NIH and 4 non-NIH) from 7 mentees. Finally, research productivity measured by number of publications more than tripled (3.7-fold increase) after mentees completed the training (from 125 to 467 publications). Twenty-one (40%) of the 52 mentees received promotion to the rank of associate professor after training. Table 1
