Improving representation of racial and ethnic groups in US clinical trials has been a focus of federal initiatives for nearly 3 decades. Equitable representation of racial and ethnic minorities in clinical trials is essential if they are to share the benefits derived from advances in medical science. Yet, racial and ethnic minorities continue to be underrepresented in clinical trials. The goal of this NIH-sponsored project is to investigate the extent to which racial and ethnic minorities are under-represented in pediatric clinical trials, and the potential factors contributing to willingness to participate in clinical trials. The student will work closely with the research team to review clinical trial data to evaluate participation of minority children in clinical trials. No prior experience is required, appropriate training will be provided.
