Companionship Philosophy

The Department of New Biology is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion as the most important core mission. We encourage talented individuals to participate in a highly collaborative research environment in which the ideas across research areas and academic disciplines were actively exchanged to achieve the department’s research goals. We seek increased diversity at every level: all participants (undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members), as well as a broad spectrum of academic disciplines (physics, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, computer and material science, mechanical and chemical engineering). Our department values teaching and mentoring and is focused on providing a supportive environment for all of its members, regardless of their background. The department has put a number of programs in place to broaden participation.
