Incredible effort has been made in recent years in encouraging girls and young women to pursue STEM education and careers. In doing so, we hope to break down stereotypes and balance the gender bias so that women can recognize their potential to thrive in the scientific community. Here at InsideScientific, we are fortunate to work very closely with intelligent, talented women in the fields of neuroscience, cardiovascular research, muscle physiology, immunology, metabolic function and obesity, pharmacology, cancer, and respiratory science.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we would like to not only recognize these incredible presenters, but also celebrate their immense successes and contributions to their respective fields. Check out the list below to read about some of the scientists who have presented their research in the past year!
