With rising deal with fairness, variety and inclusion in academia in recent times, disabled scientists/ scientists with disabilities, who face large obstacles navigating their educational careers, are nonetheless typically not noted of those discussions.

Within the Perspective ‘Navigating a analysis profession with a incapacity‘, 5 biologists share their lived experiences, together with the obstacles and successes of enterprise a scientific profession with a incapacity.

Within the article, Jack additionally discusses findings from a survey carried out on the 2022 YEN assembly, with the hope to conduct a bigger scale survey on the Node to achieve helpful perception into the experiences of disabled scientists in our neighborhood — watch this area!

The Node can also be eager to collect extra voices from the developmental and stem biology neighborhood about this under-discussed subject — if you want to jot down a chunk, get in contact.
