Diversity in Biomedical Research Council

Building a diverse and inclusive group of leaders, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students, and staff at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and its community of affiliated hospitals is central to the School's mission of advancing science and medicine through excellence in research and patient care. As part of the large effort to achieve this goal, the School established the Diversity in Biomedical Research Council (DBRC) in 2008 to promote diversity in biomedical research.

Our initiatives focus on: recruitment, development through pipelines (graduate students summer programs), retention (through career development and mentoring), and funding (NIH diversity supplements).
