Massive Science: Remembering Ben Barres, The Trailblazing Trans Neuroscientist and Mentor, On His Birthday

The legacy of the researcher, teacher, and gender equality advocate lives on

Barres’s groundbreaking work put glia on the map of neuroscience and helped us understand the brain better.

Barres was more than a trailblazing scientist and an exceptional mentor. He was a tireless advocate for diversity and inclusion in science. He believed that science could only move forward if everyone had a voice in it.
