Dr. Crystal Dilworth

"Just look at our idea of what a scientist is today. That needs to change. I want to see a young woman of color involved in research in her community. I want to see younger faces, different cultures and people who are transgender. Science is diverse and multifaceted, and so are the people engaged in science. Let’s acknowledge that."
