University of Rochester CTSI Seeking Founding Director for Office for Health Equity Research


As part of the University of Rochester Medical Center's (URMC) Equity and Anti-Racism Action Plan, the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) is establishing a new Office for Health Equity Research. The new office will support health equity research across the university and foster a deeper understanding of the root causes of health disparities and the burdens experienced by excluded groups.

To get the office off the ground, the UR CTSI has launched a search for a founding director who can establish a strategic vision and build the office as a central resource for URMC health equity researchers.
