Three projects are funded as part of the Center. In a study led by the University of Miami, we will develop new statistical methods to predict risk of disparities, starting with cervical cancer. Vanderbilt University Medical Center will examine genetic risk factors contributing to health disparities and will characterize the relative contribution of genetic risk factors for asthma and preterm birth, two conditions with substantial disparities in health outcomes among African Americans and Latinos. Vanderbilt University will lead a study of person-specific obesity treatment for African American and Latino Men.
