OUR TEAM

The Olzmann lab is committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. We strive to develop a supportive environment that is conducive to open communication, collaboration, and innovation. We embrace our common excitement and passion for scientific discovery, and work as a team to tackle challenging problems in cell biology.

‘‘A lab is a nurturing environment that aims to maximize the potential of students as scientists and as human beings.’’

– Uri Alon (Mol Cell 2009)

"A well-functioning scientific laboratory is like a family. It is a place of wonderful social interactions and an environment that provides a support structure."

– Ron Vale (Cell 2019)
