This month, we investigate the diversity problem plaguing genomic research. Although precision medicine offers great promise for diagnosing and treating disease based on an individual’s genetic background, the underrepresentation of minority groups is threatening its wider potential. Melinda Mills and Rick Kittles offer their thoughts on the scale of the problem and the action we can take to increase representation. In addition, Jesse McCoy explains the integral role that pathologists’ assistants play in the lab medicine team, a pathologist and a radiologist discuss how the two disciplines can best work together to provide optimal healthcare, and we hear from the winners of the 2019 Educational Pathology Tweet Award. We also sit down with Rick Mitchell, Lawrence J. Henderson Professor of Pathology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA.
