IFI Statement on Racial Discrimination
The Institute for Immunology reaffirms its commitment to diversity and antiracism by continually striving to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all of its members and the broader Penn community. We greatly value the contributions of our Black faculty, staff and trainees and strongly feel it is our responsibility to make sure that all of our trainees see role models within our community who look like them. Diversity enriches us as a people and as scientists.
