Commitment to Diversity

At the BRAIN Lab, we strive to create an environment where people from diverse backgrounds can belong, thrive, and realize their potential.

As Chair of the Department of Psychiatry Chair's Advisory Committee on Diversity Issues, Dr. Eyler aims to infuse the principles of anti-racism and anti-bias into all lab activities and to model and promote continuous learning and advocacy for social justice for those who have been marginalized. We welcome those who would like to join us on this journey.
