Estela Rodriguez: As recent as 2023, the scientific leadership NCI Center for Cancer Research remains poorly representative

Estela Rodriguez shared a post on X/Twitter:

As recent as 2023, the scientific leadership NCI Center for Cancer Research remains poorly representative:

  • low 3.9% Hispanic.
  • low 2.4% Black.
  • But women increasingly represented in NCI scientific leadership at 52.1%.
This lack of representation in leadership also impacts lowering of clinical trial diversity.”
