MECHANOBIOLOGY AFTER 10 YEARS: THE PROMISE OF MECHANOMEDICINE
Satellite Meeting: Women in Science, An afternoon of inspiration
Women in mechanobiology will come together from all over the world to celebrate their science, discuss their journeys through academia and share their insights in navigating career challenges. Our speakers hail from seven countries and represent a range of academic experience.
Each speaker will present a topic of her choice, including but not limited to: challenges for women in science, implicit bias in academia, life/work balance, and #Metoo in academia.
