At the SCD Lab, we prioritize inclusion and diversity in all aspects of lab life, from who we are to what we study. We are committed to an intellectual climate that is welcoming, challenging, and nurturing. As a lab we acknowledge and appreciate our differences as well as our similarities. We recognize that our strength, perspectives, and even research questions come from the whole of our experiences. In our lab we work together to create a space in which one’s race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, age, disability, national origin, and other aspects of our diversity are appreciated and respected.
