The FLARE Program, which launched in August 2012, provides training and professional development opportunities for underrepresented minority senior graduate students, postdoctoral and clinical research fellows in hormone health research. The FLARE Awards are supported by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

This year's Early Investigators and FLARE Awards will be presented at the joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society – ICE/ENDO 2014 – in Chicago, IL on June 21-24.
