Dr. Wright Receives 4th! R25 Renewal
Dr. Cynthia Wright received a 4th renewal of her R25 Grant titled, “MUSC Short Term Research Education Program to Increase Diversity,” (2 R25 HL092611). The goal of this program is to attract talented students from underrepresented groups or from disadvantaged backgrounds into careers in the biomedical sciences, particularly fields of relevance to the NHLBI. This is expected to increase the supply of qualified investigators who are studying cardiovascular, pulmonary, and hematologic diseases. Diversifying the work force in these fields will result in an improved capacity to address and eliminate health disparities and improve the quality of health care nationwide.
