Across 16 departments and numerous affiliated units, the women of the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over the world.
In the Medical Sciences it doesn’t just take a village, it takes a city to do what we do, including researchers, professors, clinicians, physiotherapists, research nurses, administrators, fundraisers, students, custodial staff, receptionists, teachers, lecturers, trainers and many, many more.
100 of these women took part in a project to showcase diversity of roles they now hold. They were asked to reflect on their journeys, their place in Medical Sciences and their vision for the next 100 years.
On International Women's Day 2021, meet those based in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics:
Dan Li, University Research Lecturer, Departmental Lecturer and Senior Researcher
Eboni Bucknor, 4th Year Oxford-MRC Doctoral Training Partnership funded DPhil Student
Jennifer Spencer, Service Desk Analyst
Sally Vine, Head of Administration and Finance
Samira Lakhal-Littleton, Associate Professor of Physiology and MRC Senior Non-Clinical Research Fellow
Vicky Ball, Lab Manager and Research Assistant
