This PIC received funding for their project titled “A Community Partnership in Achieving Precision Medicine: Addressing the Biological Determinants of Health Disparities in African Americans.”

The PAIR-UP selection process yielded five groups of talented scientists who have demonstrated exceptional promise in the imaging science field, who are from different institutions and who have not previously collaborated on a research project. Funding for the PICs has been provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
