Diversity, equity and inclusion

Our goal is to perform cutting-edge research to understand and treat Batten disease and other lysosomal storage disorders, while advocating for equity and representation within and beyond the lab.

This includes providing mentorship that ensures lab members are thoroughly trained to approach scientific inquiry in a methodical and hypothesis-driven manner, while simultaneously fostering the development of skills necessary to empower themselves and to accomplish their career goals.  

We also aim to foster an environment that values and rewards collaboration, sharing and teamwork, providing equal opportunity for all.
