Through a multidisciplinary approach of culturally sensitive clinical care and research, the Minority Men’s Health Center takes on some of the nation’s current greatest challenges. In cooperation with researchers at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute, the Center pursues a wide variety of studies such as immunology, molecular genetics, behavioral research and clinical trials of new therapies and diagnostics.
The Minority Men’s Health Center was created in an effort to focus on prostate cancer and renal transplantation in African American men, where there are striking differences in disease and incidents. However, future endeavors are underway to expand the array of treatments and outcomes for a variety of conditions and diseases to treat all minorities.
