UCLA CTSI News Archive


Listen to the audio interview with Dr. L. Ebony Boulware on the importance of racial and ethnic diversification and increased focus on equity in clinical and translational research.

A perspective piece in the New England Journal of Medicine calls for the clinical and translational research enterprise to put diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at the heart of its work.

The piece was a cross-consortium effort led by L. Ebony Boulware, M.D., a CTSA Program steering committee member and the director of the Duke Clinical & Translational Science Institute. Emerging from data collected during the 2020 Fall Virtual CTSA Program Meeting, the article puts forth four goals to achieve DEI in clinical and translational research.
