Norbert von der Groeben

Drs. Bonnie Maldonado and Mark Cullen will lead a new NIH-funded center aimed at improving the health of underserved ethnic and racial groups. Stanford Precision Health for Ethnic and Racial Equity Center (SPHERE) will be one of the first national centers focused on using precision-medicine tools to improve the health of underserved ethnic and racial groups. 

“The SPHERE Center will bring together outstanding investigators from across the School of Medicine to address fundamental questions about health and disease among minority populations,” Maldonado said. “These populations are often underrepresented in traditional clinical research, and this center is positioned to address this disparity.”
