Welcome Message from Brian R. Smith, MD and John Krystal, MD
Co-Directors of the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation

Yale, Community partners and the FDA Office of Minority Health and Health Equity

Yale, our community partners, and the FDA Office of Minority Health and Health Equity are catalyzing racial equity in clinical trials through community empowerment. For more than a decade under the CTSA, the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation and our Cultural Ambassadors have focused on addressing diverse participation in clinical trials and bridging health gaps. In partnership with the FDA Office of Minority Health and Health Equity, we are connecting investigators to our community and patients—the heroes of clinical research—as one of the hallmarks of YCCI. Learn more about Yale's program, the FDA and minority health, and the importance of participating in clinical trials for all populations.
