Research on equity in science seeks to understand the factors associated with promoting and achieving diversity in biomedical careers. This includes understanding the factors related to the recruitment, promotion and retention of women and minority faculty in academic biomedical careers. Research includes observation studies to understand the factors associated with promoting and advancing biomedical careers, as well as interventions to address these issues.
The program also addresses disparities in healthcare delivery, focusing on care for women and minority communities. Disparities in care are well documented in multiple racial and ethnic minority groups. Conditions in common between women and men have also demonstrated gender disparities in outcomes. Our recent research focuses on interventions to reduce and eliminate these disparities.
