Dr. Vence Bonham is Senior Advisor to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Director on Genomics and Health Disparities. Dr. Bonham is also Associate Investigator in the NHGRI Social and Behavioral Research Branch and Head of the Health Disparities Unit. Dr. Bonham’s research interests the translation of genomic findings into the clinic and how that translation impacts health disparities. Dr. Bonham’s research team uses qualitative and quantitative methods to develop measurement tools grounded in theory (race and social cognitive), public health law, law, genomics, and clinical decision-making.
