Co-Investigator, Northwestern University

Richard McGee, Jr. is the Associate Dean for Faculty Recruitment and Professional Development and Professor of Medical Education at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. His primary research and academic interests are in the development of young scientists. His work in this arena spans the continuum including: the ‘basic science’ of how undergraduate and PhD student fine tune career decision with a longitudinal study of 500 students; application and study of new coaching-based models to support early PhD students; use of group-based models to assist junior faculty develop as scientists; a randomized controlled trial of a different approach to fostering diversity in academia. All of these studies have one of their primary goals to determine the root causes for the lack of diversity among biomedical scientists.
