Affinity groups are social and professional organizations that amplify and celebrate the experiences of individuals with a common historically excluded identity. These groups provide a safe social space for members of an identity group to share resources and experiences, promoting inclusivity while recognizing diversity and providing a support system. Groups for the Basic Sciences are modeled on those available to medical students.

MCB and Immunology DEI Committees collaborated to facilitate the nucleation of these groups in the research community. These groups are fully autonomous and organized and shaped by, and for, the trainees in each group, and are supported administratively by the Office of Research & Graduate Education (RGE).
