Vanderbilt-Miami-Meharry Center of Excellence in Precision Medicine and Population Health

The mission of the Vanderbilt-Miami-Meharry Center for Excellence in Precision Medicine and Population Health is to provide a diverse group of researchers with the infrastructure and resources to develop collaborative research teams that use precision medicine approaches to eliminate disparities in health outcomes, specifically among African Americans and Latinos. Our objectives encompass scientific, educational, and advocacy areas. We fill the cross-training gap between human genomics research and disparities research; generate awareness of immediately addressable disparities and propose practical solutions; and are a resource nationally for disparities knowledge. The combined resources and expertise of our partners yields extraordinary services and new resources that propels precision medicine and health disparities research.
