The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology recently announced the Center for Indigenous Science will attempt to ask "questions of importance to Indigenous peoples, and taught to the next generation of scientists, with the hope of transforming how predominately white science is thought about and practiced." 

Two anthropology faculty members, Professor Ripan S. Malhi and Associate Professor Jenny L. Davis are leading the effort and will be co-chairing the new Center. Read more about the scope and research of this new important initiative in the IGB website
