Team Diversity:

We have faith in the prosperity that always accompanies diversity. An inclusive scientific community that aims to expand diversity and practice equity is the foundation of a fair and thriving society. With such a diversified team, we will embrace the uniqueness of each team member, regardless of race, gender, identity, socioeconomic status, or citizenship. Building upon the cross-culture atmosphere in MGH/HMS, we are fully committed to an inviting and collaborative environment in our lab, where diversity and equity are always emphasized, advocated, and related issues are openly discussed.
