GSSIMR and Social Change

Jun 11 2020

The Graduate School of the Stowers Institute for Medical Research stands opposed to all forms of racial injustice. We acknowledge that the roots of systemic racism throughout our society are deep and tangled, and that bias and discrimination still exist within a scientific research community where not all scholars have equal access or recognition. While opposing blatant injustice in the world around us, we remain steadfastly committed to this cause within our own program and to the long-term goal of dismantling systemic racism in science.
