I joined ALBA because :
As scientists who believe in the powers of interdisciplinary research and the diversity of ideas, I am convinced that promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion is essential for our ability to advance neuroscience and our quests to understand the complexity of the brain and tackle brain disorders.

To achieve this goal, we need to do more to create the space, forums, and platforms for all members of our global neuroscience community to share their work and ideas, to challenge conventional wisdom, to connect with other neuroscientists, and to contribute to shaping the field.
We also must work together to ensure that the leadership of neuroscience organizations, lists of speakers in future conferences, and memberships in influential committees and boards reflect the true diversity of our global neuroscience community.

This is precisely what ALBA network is trying to accomplish, and I am happy to be able to contribute to advancing its mission and strategic objectives.
