Dr. Lola Eniola-Adefeso: A Story of My Journey to Studying the Impact of Red Blood Cell Rigidity in Sickle Cell Disease
Racial diversity remains lacking in U.S. STEM faculty. The lack of representation of Black, Hispanic/Latino/a, and Indigenous Americans in the engineering and science faculty ranks creates a significant burden on U.S. scientific enterprise - both in our ability to generate science and technology that works for all Americans, and our global competitiveness.
MLK Visiting Professor Dr. Lola Eniola-Adefeso, hosted by Professor Paula Hammond and the department of Chemical Engineering, speaks about STEM faculty diversity in the context of her journey to studying the impact of red blood cell rigidity in sickle cell disease.
