The Scheff lab is committed to providing a supportive, diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment, to promote the training and career development of its team members. We hold strong in our belief that diversity strengthens both our lab culture and our science enabling us to generate fresh and innovate approaches towards neurobiology research . To uphold our beliefs and values, we strive to provide a nurturing and supportive space for people from all walks of life, especially those who are often underrepresented in STEM.
Here at the Scheff Lab, we work diligently to improve the sustainability of our practices by reducing water consumption, waste generation, and overall energy use in the lab. It is our goal to become active contributors in minimizing the environmental impact of our laboratory operations. We are proud to participate in Pitt’s Green Labs program, which provides guidance and recognition for sustainable practices throughout the university system.
