“The need is so great, but the research participation amongst people of color is really low, and that has serious ramifications for developing drugs and therapies that work well in people who look like me.” Norbert Tavares is a microbiologist who is dedicated to making sure everyone can benefit from groundbreaking science and technologies in his work at CZI. He recently spearheaded a new grant program — Ancestry Networks for the Human Cell Atlas — to increase representation in genomics research so future therapies don’t leave anyone behind. But Norbert knows not everyone can wait for that future. So he’s bringing that same dedication to equitable science and medicine in his personal life, too, to help save a life. Norbert donated his kidney to a stranger in need: “I'm living my values of my work through my personal life as well. I want to try to address those other bigger problems through my small individual action.” Read more about Norbert’s story in People: https://bit.ly/3kadIAu

CZI is thrilled to sponsor RubyConf this year to continue to show our support of the Ruby community. Our Education team uses the Ruby on Rails framework to create some of the tools we build that support the needs of students and teachers. If you will be attending, we would love to connect with you virtually through CZI’s RubyConf Discord channel to meet some of the engineers on our Education team to learn more about the ways we build using Ruby. #TeamCZI #RubyConf
