About this episode

Dr Elahé Crockett and colleagues at Michigan State University have developed the Research Education Program to Increase Diversity in health researchers (REPID) program to train students from underrepresented, minority and disadvantaged backgrounds in the basic and advanced biomedical sciences. The goal of the program is to overcome the lack of diversity in biomedical research and clinical practice.
