We in the Liu Lab are committed to fostering a welcoming environment and providing equitable opportunities for all members of our community. We seek to elevate the voices of people historically excluded from science and to build a community of scientists that encompasses diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, socioeconomic status, nationality and cultural practices.

We recognize this statement cannot fully acknowledge all the ways in which a person’s identity intersects with their education and scholarship, but we encourage you to participate in our community and to provide feedback on how we can create a more welcoming and supportive environment.

 The Liu Lab recognizes that UC Berkeley sits on the territory of xučyun (Huichin), the ancestral and unceded land of the Chochenyo speaking Ohlone people, the successors of the sovereign Verona Band of Alameda County. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe and other familial descendants of the Verona Band. 

We recognize that every member of the Berkeley community has, and continues to benefit from, the use and occupation of this land, since the institution’s founding in 1868. Consistent with our values of community, inclusion and diversity, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples. As members of the Berkeley community, it is vitally important that we not only recognize the history of the land on which we stand, but also, we recognize that the Muwekma Ohlone people are alive and flourishing members of the Berkeley and broader Bay Area communities today.
