Our lab strives to maintain an environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all types of scientists. We recognize that not all people come from the same background, have similar scientific training nor share identities. Furthermore, we acknowledge our privileges allowing us to become academic scientists - we must use these privileges to make systemic change in STEM and every day life.
Mentoring is an essential component of one's scientific training. We believe that all lab members deserve a safe space to do science while in a supportive, mentored environment. We are committed to providing tailored mentoring experiences to each member as we recognize that each person comes with a different set of goals and aspirations.
Just like herpesviruses, our diversity makes us successful. We are always looking for individuals with diverse backgrounds and scientific trainings to join our collaborative team. If you are interested in joining our growing group, please contact us!
