The Center for Study of Gene Structure and Function has been renamed The Center for Translational and Basic Research (CTBR) The CTBR is a consortium of researchers within Hunter College of The City University of New York — one of the largest public universities in the nation. It boasts unparalleled quality and diversity in its researchers on both the faculty and graduate student levels.
The CTBR has recently replaced its health resource site, Justgarciahill.org with a new venture, SocialGradient.org. It connects communities to science, health, and health disparities information. The goal is to create science and health media accessible to everyone via online and in-person events. Short analysis/opinion pieces are published weekly and in-depth articles, profiles, Op-Eds, blogs, and reviews are published monthly. The web site leverages social media to ignite conversations about the social determinants of health from perspectives in the United States and abroad. To visit the site click here
MGSN is a student-run network of graduate students, medical students, and postdocs that aims to retain and increase the number of underrepresented minority students pursuing advanced degrees in STEM and medical fields.
If you’re interested in boosting MGSN activities at your school, helping plan events, or even starting a chapter, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at email@example.com to join our listserv and come to our meetings, networking events, and socials. MGSN provides the following to its members: • Academic/research support • Mentoring opportunities with established scientists • Career and personal development workshops • Mixers to foster networking and collaborations • Community outreach projects www.nycmgsn.org
