Founded in March 2000, the Schull Institute, a non-profit (501(c)(3)), grew from a series of community-based symposia on medical disparities in vulnerable populations. It was created to preserve the lifelong principles and accomplishments of Dr. William J. Schull, a distinguished geneticist, radiation expert, epidemiologist, humanitarian, and international scientist. The mission is to “mentor future leaders to improve care for vulnerable populations and achieve the highest level of education and research in public health, genetics, epidemiology, informatics, and archival research”. The Institute seeks to do this through (1) the education, mentorship, and leadership development of investigators imbued with a spirit of community and social service, and (2) the preservation of the roots of scientific inquiry. The principle program of the Institute has been an International Scholars Program. Half of our Fellows and Scholars have returned to their country of origin to academic or ministerial positions of major significance. The others are either continuing their education or job experience in the United States or have been recruited to American universities or healthcare agencies.
