What is SCBA?
The Society of Chinese Bioscientists in America (SCBA) is a non-profit organization founded by a few prominent and enthusiastic bioscientists in 1984. Currently, SCBA has approximately 2,000 members from various universities, academies, medical institutions, industrial and biotechnology companies.
Recently there has been a notable increase in hatred and violence toward Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), influenced by the irresponsible political rhetoric and xenophobia surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. There were close to 4000 anti-Asian incidents in the U.S. in the past year alone and many more went unreported. The recent hate crime involving the shooting victims in Atlanta, Georgia is a watershed moment. The SCBA stands in solidarity with the AAPI community and we applaud the efforts taken by numerous institutions and organizations to put a stop to Asian hate. We strive to promote diversity, equity and inclusion and we condemn all actions of racism, bigotry, and violence toward Asian Americans or any other ethnic groups.
