Building a Welcoming & Inclusive Research Community

3:00PM - 4:00PM USA Eastern

Both recent and historical events reveal the need for our continued work on issues of diversity and inclusion. During these times, it is important to pause for deep reflection and consideration of the role we all can play in supporting equitable access to valuable societal resources. We all have previous experiences and unconscious biases that effect how we perceive the world around us. Being aware of this helps us become better allies and advocates for diversity and inclusion within our workplaces, our neighborhoods, and the broader science community.

Picture a Scientist Movie Screening and Panel Discussion

Screening available March 25 through March 28 
Picture A Scientist is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

Biophysics 101: The Physics of Epigenetics at the Nucleosome Level

2:00PM to 3:00PM USA Eastern
The nucleosome, a complex of 147 base-pairs of DNA with eight histone proteins,  must protect its DNA, but, at the same time, allow on-demand access to it when needed by the cell. The exact mechanism of the control, to understanding modulation of gene expression and, ultimately, epigenetics, remain unclear.  We use basic physics to gain insights into the problem.
