The Minority Student Research Symposium (MSRS) Symposium with the All of Us Research Program invited underrepresented minorities (URMs) to participate in completing a research project using data from the All of Us Research Hub and presenting their work in a virtual poster session during a symposium Saturday, May 22, 2021.
Greater participation of all racial and ethnic groups is needed in biomedical research. URMs represent over 30% of the U.S. population but less than 9% of STEM PhD members and 7% of all physicians. We know that diversification of the biomedical workforce will help address the critical need the U.S. faces to reduce racial and ethnic health and health care disparities.
