International Women’s Day Online Panel

“From the need to balance career and research with family commitments, as well as the recognised bias in funding, grants and fellowships, there are numerous reasons why women are still underrepresented in science related fields. Tackling the challenges currently faced by the global community means the full and equal participation of women in science is more important than ever. Medical research can’t reach its full potential unless it can benefit from the talents of all.”

In celebration of International Women’s Day our very own gut health researcher, microbiologist Dr Emily Hoedt will be sharing her inspiring research journey as part of a panel with two other leading female researchers at HMRI – dietetics and nutrition researcher Laureate Professor Clare Collins, stroke researcher Dr Heidi Janssen 

Join us online on Tuesday 8 March to learn about their work, their passions, the challenges that they’ve faced, and the strengths that they’ve drawn on to overcome them.

When: Tuesday 8 March 2022
Time: 6.00pm – 7.00pm AESDT
