Diversity in clinical trials
Developing community-oriented clinical trialists
The Robert A. Winn Diversity in Clinical Trials Award program, created by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation, develops clinical investigators who are racially and ethnically diverse or who are committed to increasing diversity in clinical trials, and exposes promising, underrepresented minority medical students to clinical research career pathways.
The Winn Award program is training world-class clinical research scientists with additional knowledge, skills and competencies in effective community outreach and engagement. This new generation of physician investigators has the potential to transform the clinical research landscape by conducting clinical trials designed with the goal of increasing the diversity of their participants.
