Emory University Employee

"The organization lacks representation of minority scientists, which is a nationwide issue but given the demographics of Atlanta and surrounding suburbs and universities should really not be an issue with an administration that supports change and improvement. This institution is a great place for career development, including recent NIH funding to address issues of ethnic/racial diversity of biomedical professionals and postdoc professional options for all ethnic/racial groups."
