Breann Brown is an assistant professor of biochemistry at Vanderbilt School of Medicine Basic Science. Her research focuses on the structural biology of protein complexes that control mitochondrial action. In a 2020 interview, she told ASBMB Today, "I identify as a Black woman first and foremost" She said she brings her identity and experiences to the table when mentoring students so they can have a community of support. "Black women are scientists. Treat us as such. Invite us to meetings, include us as collaborators, speak to us at conferences. We contribute so much, not just DEI,” Brown tweeted during the chat.
