A healthy research environment
A friendly, egalitarian environment is of paramount importance in a research lab. A great atmosphere fosters great relationships, and makes people actually want to work.
Academic research can be stressful, so we believe that everyone should feel welcome, irrespective of age, religion, gender, or any barriers that have impeded progress in the past.
The future of science lies at the interface of topics that have traditionally been siloed into a single subject: biology, chemistry, physics.
Our focus is to enhance the fields' knowledge in the fundamentals, while seeking out opportunities to develop new technologies.
We scientists can get caught up in the minutiae of our research, and forget that there are those who need help. We are eager to give back, either directly (through teaching classes or giving lectures), or indirectly (mentoring students).
