The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at UCSF presents a live panel to address the need to fund black scientists by implementing institutional changes. The conversation’s goal is to shine a light on the barriers minority scientists face and discuss a set of detailed action items that would foster an optimal framework for equity and inclusion in the biosciences through federal and private funding agencies.
