Through the years, the Society for Developmental Biology has steadfastly advocated for and promoted equity, inclusion and diversity. We actively and constructively oppose the forces that prevent marginalized people of color from participating and contributing to the betterment of our world through scientific research and education. We are heartbroken that the Black community has suffered so many injustices and we mourn the recent losses of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd. In these trying times, we stand with others committed to safety, dignity and equality for all.
Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado, SDB President and the SDB Board of Directors
