Science is better when it's representative and inclusive. At Saikawa Lab, we strive to foster a sense of belonging. We want our lab members, collaborators, and community partners to feel valued and respected. We do not tolerate discrimination against race, gender, language, disability, age, religion, sexuality, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics that inform the diversity of our community.
The Saikawa Lab acknowledges the Muscogee (Creek) people who lived, worked, produced knowledge on, and nurtured the land where Emory’s Oxford and Atlanta campuses are now located. Emory University was founded in 1836, during a period of sustained oppression, land dispossession, and forced removals of Muscogee (Creek) and Cherokee peoples from Georgia and the Southeast. It is important for us to acknowledge, honor, and respect the land we now call home; to further recognize the inherent intersections between Indigenous rights, sustainability, and the environment.
