As part of the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health’s celebration of International Women’s Day #BalanceforBetter, they are proudly welcoming some of the country’s leading female voices in science, in association with The Cosmic Shambles Network.

On Friday, 8 March, join physicist, oceanographer and author Dr Helen Czerski in conversation with:

  • Ginny Smith – a science presenter and writer.

All four women were part of the CSN’s Cosmic Superheroes, a unique photographic celebration of the supernatural powers it has taken for women at the forefront of Arts and Science to establish themselves in their fields.
