As individuals interested in clinical and medical research, we have observed an increasing need for methodological research skills by grassroots, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations. However, research methodology skills and resources are of-ten available only in post-secondary institutions (i.e., graduate programs and communities of practice). Undergraduate learners often face the challenge of accessing post-graduate research training. This guest editorial describes the Research Empowerment & Development (RED) Fellowship, a six-week collaborative program that aims to build capacity in individu-als to conduct, develop, and implement high-quality research. This editorial will discuss the rationale for this program, the program plan, program design process, target audience, program timeline, future goals, and contact information.
