We are striving to have a diverse, fair and inclusive lab and work environment. We will support each other and help out when we see someone physically or mentally struggling. And we will do the same for colleagues and peers, as we reach out to others for collaborations. We will work respectively with people from different backgrounds, experiences and nationalities. To collaborate more efficiently and ensure reproducibility, we will implement the principles of open data and open science.
