The NIH recently hosted a one-day convening of thought leaders on the issue of enhancing the diversity of the biomedical workforce, with a focus on institutional programs around the U.S. that produce the most significant numbers of students who earn a Ph.D. in biomedical science fields and who are from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences.
