Training Program Empowers Native Students in Neuroscience Discovery

Diné College students learn how they can contribute to better health of Native people and communities with an eye toward creating lasting change.

Indigenous communities in the U.S. experience a disproportionately higher burden of disease and lower life expectancy than most Americans. Studies cite higher poverty rates, challenging social conditions, mistrust in the delivery of health services and a history of exclusion from clinical research as factors that contribute to these disparities

Over a 10-week long summer internship, two students from Diné College, a tribal college located on the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona, visited Tucson to take part in an annual neurosciences program aimed at changing not only the number of Native students in these laboratories, but also the work that happens in them.



The Center for Innovation in Brain Science (CIBS) at the University of Arizona is addressing the challenge that, in the 21st century, there is not a single cure for a single neurodegenerative disease and is focused on four age-associated neurodegenerative diseases: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and ALS.
