Diversity Centers for Genome Research

NHGRI and the National Institute for Minority Health and Health Disparities have jointly awarded $6.4 million in first year funding to establish Diversity Centers for Genome Research at three institutions. These centers will support cutting-edge genomics projects and expand the research capabilities of these institutions with the goal of building a more diverse genomics workforce.

To accelerate genomics research, we support scientists at public and private institutions around the world.

“Collaboration and teamwork ensure that our genomic advances improve health for all humans. ”
