The effect of estrogen on scientific research

Friday, 8 March, 2013 - 12:00 to Friday, 8 March, 2013 - 14:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
CROSSTALKS, R&D, Kultuurkaffee & UPV

At the occasion of the 102th International Women's Day, this Campustalks will zoom in on gender bias in science. Not only with regard to women's employment, but also in terms of their impact on scientific research. What are their accomplishments and what is their impact on scientific research in biology, medicine, technology or social sciences?

This Campustalks is linked to rector Paul De Knop's initiative to dedicate the doctor honoris causi of Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 2013 entirely to female scientists.
