Mum, I want to be a scientist

· Cambridge

“Mum, I want to be a scientist” is a special seminar and roundtable organised by SRUK-Cambridge to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, 11F.

Highly devoted women scientists and related to science, from different fields, will tell us how they found their way to become researchers. What challenges they have overcome throughout their careers from a personal point of view and in terms of equality.

We are delighted to have with us:

  • Professor Margaret Stanley (Emeritus Professor of Epithelial Biology, Department of Pathology, University of Cambridge)
  • Dr Amanda Sferruzzi-Perri ( University Lecturer in Physiology, Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow & Lister Institute Fellow)
  • Ms Parthena Exizidou (Engineer at British Antarctic Survey)

And more…

This event is an open and friendly roundtable that aims to create discussion about the role of women is Science and how to motivate little girls, and not so little, to obtain a good scientific career. It will be followed by a cheese&wine reception. Everyone is welcome!
