OverviewRacial/ethnic differences as surrogate markers for describing risk for disease on a genomic level is becoming increasingly common in both clinical practice and research settings. It is vital to understand the populations at risks of health disparities based on genetic and environmental health.
- • Promote a better understanding of the link between genetics and environmental factors on disease, disorder and conditions in minorities.
- • Facilitate the cross cluster collaborations on the role of genetics and environmental factors on neurological, cardiovascular and immunological diseases.
- • Develop in collaboration with the DCC additional multi-site research projects across disciplines that will capitalize on emerging technologic advances and unique resources.
