The Patti laboratory is fully and unconditionally committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusivity in pursuit of scientific excellence. We believe that the more voices we have represented and amplified in our laboratory, the more innovation we will cultivate and the more we will thrive. Accordingly, we strive to create an environment in which all group members (no matter their identities or life experiences) are inspired not only to collaborate, but also to value our collective diversity. Scientists do their best work when they feel safe and they trust their colleagues. This culture emanates from inclusivity, where everyone interacts with each other through mutual respect, support, and appreciation of differences and has access to equitable opportunities.
