Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology (FLARE)

The Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology (FLARE) program is for basic science and clinical research trainees from underrepresented minority communities who have demonstrated achievement in endocrine research. FLARE program components provide structured leadership development and in-depth, hands-on training in topics ranging from grantsmanship to lab management.

FLARE applications are currently closed.

FLARE is sponsored by a grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).


FLARE Components

  • The FLARE Workshop two-day training teaches the “business of research” and the skills trainees need to establish themselves as independent researchers
  • In the FLARE Internship, trainees serve on Society governance committees and mentor undergraduates in the Minority Access Program, or they participate in the Keystone Symposia Fellows Program
  • The FLARE Mentoring Network connects underrepresented minority trainees to accomplished biomedical and clinical scientists online and in-person. The FLARE ENDO Abstract Award supports trainees as they present at the Society’s Annual Meeting & Expo (ENDO)
