FIU-RCMI Research

The FIU-RCMI focuses on developing and sustaining a research portfolio addressing health disparities. Health disparities are largely preventable differences in the burden of disease experienced by certain groups on the basis of social, economic, or environmental disadvantage.

FIU-RCMI investigators have conducted health disparities research on a wide range of topics, including HIV, COVID-19, substance use problems, mental health, Alzheimer’s Disease, sleep hygiene, the microbiome, agrochemical exposure, and pediatric caner, while taking into consideration critical social and structural determinants of health. FIU-RCMI investigator work with community partners to ensure our efforts promote health equity among and across the diverse communities of South Florida.

Our vision is a south Florida where all populations have an equal opportunity to love long, healthy, and productive lives.
