It is 8:00 am Pacific time and Elizabeth Blackburn, Nobel Laureate and President of the jury for the 2016 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women In Science (FWIS) awards, which she won in 2008, takes time out to speak to us about the place of women in science.
Eminent biologist, former head of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and President of France’s Academy of Sciences, Professor Bernard Meunier is not interested in gender when it comes to science, only in excellence. In this interview he speaks about the past, present and future position of women in science.
Through the For Women In Science (FWIS) programme, L‘Oréal Foundation hopes to offer a new generation of female role models to the scientists of the future. David Macdonald, Philanthropy Director for Women in Science at the Foundation explains how to raise the profile of successful women scientists.
