UF researchers seek to address racial disparities in clinical trials

A team of physicians and scientists is leveraging personal experiences with underrepresentation in medicine to identify a solution that addresses implicit bias in clinical research. Della V. Mosley, Ph.D., Crystal Johnson-Mann, M.D., and Azra Bihorac, M.D., M.S., (pictured from left to right) received an inaugural grant from UF Research, in conjunction with the UF Office of the Chief Diversity Officer, to advance and catalyze sustainable efforts toward racial justice, diversity, equity and inclusion at UF.
