Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
In the Gaunt Group we are committed to providing a welcoming and supportive space for all. We are a sociable group and actively work to create an environment where everyone is free to be themselves. All members are encouraged to contribute to our scientific community where the sharing of knowledge and development of ideas forms the foundations of lab 177.
If you are interested in applying to the group and would like an opportunity to meet lab members please get in touch with Matt or the group EDI officers Georgia and Alex R.
