Mentoring to Inspire Diversity in Science (MInDS) is an outreach group comprised of graduate-level students of the Cellular, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics PhD Program (JHU KSAS Biology Department). The group is open to JHU graduate-level students from other Departments as well.
MInDS believes in the value of diversity in science, both at Hopkins and in our surrounding communities. We engage in active K-12 outreach by leading outreach events at schools in surrounding communities, participating in the science outreach efforts of other organizations, and encouraging students to pursue careers in science. Through these efforts, MInDS would like to share the joy of scientific exploration and aims to break down barriers to encourage the scientific pursuits of underrepresented groups.
