Center for Urban Health Disparities Research and Innovation

The mission of the Center for Urban Health Disparities Research and Innovation at Morgan State University (RCMI@Morgan) is to use a transdisciplinary team of both basic biomedical and public health/behavioral science researchers to conduct research to understand health issues disproportionately affecting minority groups, particularly those living in urban settings of Baltimore.

A unique feature of RCMI@Morgan is to blend basic science researchers with behavioral/public health researchers. We will also recruit a senior basic biomedical science researcher who will help to develop partnerships among the researchers, and team up with senior faculty members from MSU, JHU, and UMB. Further, we will collaborate with researchers from other RCMI institutions through the RCMI Translational Research Network's Data Coordinating Center (RTRN DCC), to mentor all the junior faculty members at MSU to develop them as independent researchers. Finally, the RCMI@Morgan will become a research hub on urban health disparities and an integral part of the City of Baltimore through community engagement and community-based participatory research.
