Research training programs


Collaborating with all schools on the MCV Campus, the College of Humanities and Sciences and the College of Engineering, we recruit and mentor racial and ethnic minorities and other under-represented groups at all levels with the goal of diversification of the scientific research and health care workforce.

Health disparities research

Our faculty conduct research that advances the understanding of the development and progression of diseases and disabilities that contribute to health disparities.

Community engagement

We create partnerships to help community members take actions to reduce health disparities by understanding and addressing the social, structural and environmental factors that are connected to the state of health in their communities.
