Vanderbilt Center for Health Services Research Grant Program

The Center for Health Services Research (CHSR) announces a new CHSR Research Grant Program to support research projects that advance equity in health care. This proposal cycle solicits applications that address the use of race in diagnostic tests and clinical algorithms for risk assessment, diagnosis, or treatment. Our goal is to foster research aimed at eliminating racial bias in clinical practices that may result from the use of biased formulas and algorithms, a form of structural racism.
