The contributions of Black women in science are essential and we strive to amplify these voices
Centering Black women as scientists
We believe in leveling the playing field and using the power of community to power collective change toward opportunity
Building equitable social capital for career advancement
From our seminars, podcasts, community events, and new fundraising goals, we're continuing and building opportunities for our members to grow through up-skilling and development experiences
Fostering transformative growth opportunities
Computational biology and bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops and applies computational methods to analyse large collections of biological data, such as genetic sequences, cell populations or protein samples, to make new predictions or discover new biology. The computational methods used include analytical methods, mathematical modelling and simulation. (Nature.com)
