Working towards a more equitable academic environment to nurture diversity, and to promote creativity has become an important personal goal as an active professional member within our scientific community. This goal requires actions at many different levels, from the lab to scientific organizations to entities developing policies. Thus, it is important to connect with colleagues who are working towards similar goals to assist and contribute to an important transformation that must take place to make science and scientific careers possible regardless of gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability, culture or socioeconomic status.

Imaging (microscopy)
Molecular approaches
Species : vertebrate
I joined ALBA because :
Science progresses when questions are answered. Questions are made when one tries to understand something. To fully understand a topic, one must see the bigger picture or look at it from different angles. Here is where diversity is key! Bringing people from different backgrounds together enables science to move forward.

I joined ALBA because :
Women's contributions to sciences have been underestimated. More than ever, equality among genders must operate in neurosciences (and every other scientific fields). I believe that it is extremely important that every human being must have the same rights, opportunities and recognition, so totally agree with Alba Network actions.
