    Diversity, equity, and, inclusion in research spaces with The Lewis Lab

    Welcome to part III of the Lewis Lab Series. This episode features  Dr. Jennifer Lewis, an adjunct professor at the University of California Berkeley as well as a few of her lab members, Nate Diplock, Jamie Calma, and Mael Baudin. In today's episode, we wander through the Lewis Lab to dive into how diversity, equity, and inclusion can foster a culture of scientific excellence!
