Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity & Inclusion
The UNC Blood Research Center is committed to increase diversity and inclusion for a career in academic hematology and hematology research. The NIH funded Hematology T32 Training Grant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) remains committed to training both MD physician-scientists and postdoctoral PhD scientists for careers in academic hematology and hematology research. Our goal of increasing the number of applicants from groups historically underrepresented (UR) in research and to provide our trainees to continue on with successful scientific careers in research related fields. This program will continue to train the most promising clinical fellows, primarily from adult and pediatric hematology, as well as PhD post-doctoral candidates in areas of traditional institutional research strength that encompass benign hematology. We aim to recruit an outstanding diverse training pool of applicants. The research mission of the recently created ‘UNC Blood Research Center’ encompasses precisely the same areas of focus in non-malignant hematology under a new organizational structure that enhances the opportunities for training and team science.
The UNC BRC T32 Hematology Training Grant and it’s faculty mentors are committed to provide mentorship, collaboration, training, academic support, and professional development to all of our applicants.
Office of Diversity & Inclusion Mission
The University Office for Diversity and Inclusion has primary responsibility for providing University-wide leadership on best practices and strategies to build and sustain an inclusive campus community. D&I promotes the principles of equity and inclusion in recruitment, through diversity education and functions, and development programming. D&I strives to position Carolina to fulfill its mission of educating a diverse student body with the added goal of aspiring to attract and retain faculty and staff reflective of our larger community while maintaining an unwavering commitment to excellence.
As the need for better understanding of cultures, religions, and identities grows, Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) continues to lead the way on campus in providing diversity trainings and workshops, especially for faculty and staff. D&I Website: Diversity & Inclusion UNC DOM
