Blazing The Way
A celebration of some of the talented women of BioSci.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the School is celebrating some of the women in BioSci who are passionate about transforming the world around them. They are trailblazers, visionaries and the heart of the School, from the biologists of tomorrow, the scientists both propelling research and making STEM more inclusive, and those who work behind the scenes to ensure the School runs smoothly. Join us as we celebrate remarkable women in BioSci.
