Dr. Reddy and his colleagues recognize that scientific and biomedical discoveries do not take place in isolation from society.  He strongly believes his lab research outcome will be useful to communities in US and across the globe. Past and current events have led us to take an active stance in examining how research in academia at large and the Reddy lab in particular can create a more equitable society without discrimination of sex and race.
