Dr. Sidney A. McNairy, Jr. Dr. McNairy’s twenty-five years of exemplary leadership contributed to the development and growth of the Research Centers in Minority Institutes. He championed the idea that researchers in minority and other small and developing institutions can compete with scientists at majority institutions if presented with the same resources and opportunities. Dr. McNairy worked to foster biomedical research environments in minority institutions that have given thousands of researcher’s access to scientific and educational resources and ensured that a diverse group of scientists contribute to the biomedical research advances that lead to improved health for all.
