Black Lives Matter

The Department of Neuroscience and the Mahoney Institute for Neurosciences (MINS) are committed to Black Lives Matter and strongly believe that greater diversity among our Students, Trainees, Staff, and Faculty will strengthen our program. We will participate wholeheartedly in the University of Pennsylvania’s Action for Cultural Transformation and will strive to reveal and remove bias, both conscious and unconscious. We strive to ensure equity and inclusion in hiring and treatment practices across the neuroscience community. Our goal is a neuroscience community that is inclusive and affirmatively anti-racist in all aspects of its operations.
