Welcome

The Research Center in Minority Institutions at Miami Dade’s Florida International University will focus on developing and sustaining a national, clinical and behavioral research program addressing health inequities and disparities primarily associated with HIV and substance use problems for underrepresented minorities. Our vision is a South Florida where all populations have an equal opportunity to live long, healthy and productive lives.
