100 years since women were admitted as full members of the University of Oxford, women now hold vital posts at all levels of this institution. Meet six amazing women from DPAG.

Dan Li, Eboni Bucknor, Jennifer Spencer, Sally Vine, Samira Lakhal-Littleton and Vicky Ball with 100 Women of Oxford MedSci Logo

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

 

As part of centenary celebrations, DPAG will celebrate more of our current members alongside our incredible alumni from the early pioneers through to our more recent leavers who have gone onto notable careers, to be unveiled in a new website in Trinity Term 2021.
