 Darin A. Latimore, M.D., has been Deputy Dean for Diversity and Inclusion at the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) since January 2017, and is the School of Medicine's inaugural Chief Diversity Officer.

Alongside YSM senior leadership, Dr. Latimore is responsible for developing a comprehensive plan for furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion at the school, including a robust recruitment and retention program for faculty, and students from historically underrepresented medical communities.  He coordinates with such groups as the Diversity, Inclusion, Community Engagement & Equity (DICE), the Minority Organization for Retention and Expansion (MORE), the Committee on the Status of Women in Medicine (SWIM), the Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (CDISJ), and the Dean's Advisory Council on LGBTQ Affairs.

As part of his current strategy to improve the cultural climate for all of YSM, Dr. Latimore has given over 40 talks on the topic of unconscious bias, training 1,000 people.  His research focus is microaggression and how it affects health professional students in the educational environment.

Dr. Latimore's passion for promoting diversity and inclusion stems from his own background.  As an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, he felt isolated on a campus where there were few African-Americans and even fewer students from his socioeconomic background.  After obtaining his medical degree at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, he completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of California, Davis Medical Center.  Sponsored by the UofL HSC Office of Diversity and Inclusion.  Lunch provided.

R!L 2018 Keynote SpeakerKeynote Speaker:  Joseph Petrosino, Ph.D., Interim Chair and Professor, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Virology, Baylor College of Medicine, and Director of the Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research 

Keynote Address:  The Human Microbiome in Precision Medicine: (Way) Beyond Fecal Transplantation

The Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research (CMMR) at Baylor College of Medicine is pursuing numerous research and development efforts in the study of how the microbiome impacts human disease, including autoimmune disease, neurodevelopmental disorders, cancer, and Type 1 diabetes.  Among these efforts are the bench marking and validation of protocols and strategies to engage large complex cohorts and unique sample sources for metagenomic analyses.  The CMMR has made significant investments in preclinical model systems to facilitate host-microbe studies and connect association to causality, as this is often a critical hurdle for any microbiome-based therapeutic.  Among these models are the use of germ-free rodents and physiologically active human culture systems that mimic host susceptibility and response to identify important microbe-host interactions in mucosal diseases.  By implementing 'omics-based approaches with these translational models, we are beginning to reveal host responses to microbial colonization and infection which can inform precision medicine-based targets for the detection and treatment of disease. Reception to follow.
