Welcome to the Center for Scientific Diversity at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). The Center, founded by Dr. Emma Benn, is a newly launched initiative of the Dean’s Office and Institute for Health Equity Research at ISMMS aimed at increasing the research success and ensuring equitable advancement of underrepresented faculty investigators in academic medical centers nationwide. Additionally, the Center is committed to increasing representation and retention of underrepresented students in the biomedical research workforce. Our Center is unique in that we apply a rigorous, antiracist, research-driven, evidence-based, and culturally competent approach to accomplish these goals. We invite you to scroll through our website to learn more about our mission, team, research projects and opportunities, and accomplishments to date.
