About the Committee
The goal of the Minorities Affairs Committee (MAC) is to significantly increase the involvement of underrepresented minority scientists in all aspects of the Society. We recognize the need to recruit minority scientists and promote their professional development. The relatively small size of the pool of scientists with an interest in cell biology requires that we also develop programs for undergraduate and predoctoral students to assist them in achieving careers in biomedical research. A long range goal of the committee is to contribute to the nation’s effort to increase the number of underrepresented minority scientists overall.
