Center for Health Disparities and Molecular Medicine
Welcome to the Center for Health Disparities and Molecular Medicine (CHDMM). Each year medical and scientific advances offer new opportunities for the improvement of health for all Americans. Yet a disproportionate burden of diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer, and HIV/AIDS, continues among minority and medically underserved populations. Our faculty is engaged in innovative research that is needed to identify and understand the contributors to health disparities. These contributors may include biological, environmental, socioeconomic, or cultural factors.
High school students can gain experience in our 8-week summer Apprenticeship Bridge to College program in health disparities research.
Through UTP, undergraduate and university students receive 9-weeks of practical lab research experience alongside our distinguished LLU faculty.
MTP offers first year minority medical students an opportunity to gain research and scientific experience in health disparities.
