My Coming Out Story
Without my 8th-grade English teacher’s kind words, I would be a different person today. He inspired me to be my true self.
In celebration of Black History Month in February, we highlighted researchers – from students to executive leadership – who identify as being part of the Black community in our inaugural Spotlight Series! From signaling pathways and energy production in cells to health disparities and food studies – it was a celebration of research excellence in a range of disciplines and at various career stages. Researchers also shared their lived experiences – what Black History Month and allyship mean to them, and how they practice self-care. Explore the photos below to learn more about our researchers!
