Michael Campbell is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Howard University. This week, we discussed Campbell's ongoing research in a very prominent, and very delicate, topic - what's the color of your skin have to do with race? Campbell's research team aims to understand the genetic basis of complex diseases that disproportionately affect African and African American populations. His main research interest revolved around studying the levels and patterns of African diversity to expand current knowledge concerning relationships among African populations, demographic history and modern human origins.
