Diversity in Neuroscience Mission Statement
Our goal is to support highly innovative and productive research in basic, translational, and clinical neuroscience by promoting an exciting, equitable, diverse and inclusive environment that empowers all members of our community to contribute to scientific discovery and clinical translation. Our goal is to generate an environment that fosters creative approaches to fully understand brain and nervous system function and develop therapies and cures for disease and eventually preventive measures. We commit to listening to and learning from the many diverse voices of our community in order to remove barriers to opportunities and success for everyone.
