About the Working Group
The Race + Racism in Biomedicine Working Group was founded in 2015 with seed funding from the Georgia Tech Provost with the goal of building intellectual common ground among researchers coming from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, and to spark interdisciplinary and cross-institution collaborative research on race and racism in contemporary biomedical research.
