The Bakkour Lab is dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment for all those who are enthusiastic about engaging in science. We place a great amount of value on diversity, and we strive to ensure that all members of the lab feel a strong sense of belonging. We aim to bring together a team with differences in opinion, background, skin color, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, origin, and any and all of the unique characteristics that each of us brings. For more information, please feel free to read about the UChicago Department of Psychology’s commitment to diversity & inclusion on their website.
