Lab culture and philosophy
My lab is an open and inclusive environment. All members of the lab are dedicated to the advancement of science for the purposes of gaining knowledge and improving the human condition.
As important as our translational research is, we view training, mentorship, and teaching the scientific method and analytical thinking to be equally important. We actively work to decrease disparities in scientific education for women and underrepresented minorities.
