OHSU-PSU School of Public Health Associate Professor, Lisa K. Marriott, Ph.D., is Oregon’s only recipient of the 2022 National Institutes of Health (NIH) award for Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship. This award supplements her lab’s ongoing work to enhance training for a diverse scientific workforce.
Marriott’s work aims to help students who are interested in biomedical sciences see themselves as scientists and develop the persistence they’ll need to succeed. Her lab builds research and training tools for international use, including informatics-based data collection platforms, training websites, and supportive approaches for engaging students from middle school through graduate levels.
