Dr. Fuchs-Young is a Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine in the College of Medicine at Texas A&M University. The scope of her laboratory research includes studies of breast cancer health disparities and the bio-physiological mechanisms underlying disproportionately poor outcomes in women of color. Throughout her career, Dr. Fuchs-Young has combined basic laboratory research with the development and implementation of programs focused on community engagement/outreach, K-16 education, and community based participatory research (CBRP). She has directed the Community Outreach and Engagement Core in two NIEHS P30 Centers and previously served as the Associate Director of the Dorothy Height Center for Health Equity and Evaluation Research (formerly the Center for Research on Minority Health (CRMH)) at MD Anderson Cancer Center. The activities for K-12 students are designed to stimulate interest in and enhance preparation for STEM careers, and are focused on those who are underrepresented in STEM and underserved.
