Our Values

It is our priority to uphold a laboratory environment where every individual is greeted with equality and respect, regardless of their race, gender, nationality, religion, and sexual orientation. As a lab composed of members with diverse backgrounds, we are proud to attribute our success to an open and inclusive lab culture. We remain committed to maintaining the boundlessness of science through inclusion and understanding and pledge to speak out against those who condone messages of hate and prejudice. We heartily stand with our colleagues who share similar beliefs.
