Increasing equity, inclusion and diversity in the biological sciences, Dr. Mensinger has used his extramural funding during the past two decades to substantially increase the number of research opportunities for students in the STEM fields and to support a diverse group of scholars in undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral research in the biological sciences at the university, regional and national level. This has resulted in disproportionate numbers of students in marginalized populations enrolling and completing graduate degrees in the STEM fields.
