"Women and Future in Science" Seminar Series

Started in Nov 2021, this seminar series is featuring women researchers and their achievements in the life science field. We will be inviting early-career women scientists who are conducting cutting-edge research as well as other women scientists at various career stages. We hope that this seminar series will enhance the visibility of women researchers in the scientific community and encourage early-career women researchers, especially students and postdocs at the BDR, to aspire to the scientific accomplishments the speakers have achieved.

2021年11月に始まった本セミナーシリーズでは、生命科学研究分野の女性研究者による研究と成果を特集すべく、現在第一線で活躍されている若手の研究者の方々や、様々なキャリアステージの方々をお招きしています。女性研究者の優れた研究と成果を紹介することにより、科学コミュニティにおける女性研究者への注目度が高められることや、理研BDRに所属する学生や研究員を含めた若手の女性研究者が活気づけられることを期待しています。
