As Nature Neuroscience celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are having conversations with both established leaders in the field and those earlier in their careers to discuss how neuroscience has evolved and where it is heading. This month, we are talking to Lucina Q. Uddin, professor-in-residence at Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles and the 2022–2023 Chair of the Diversity & Inclusivity Committee for the Organization for Human Brain Mapping. She uses neuroimaging to study brain networks that support behavior in typically developing children and children with autism. She spoke with me about how she became interested in neuroscience, her career trajectory, and personal experiences that led to her efforts in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.
