As part of its Athena Swan initiative the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and genetics hosted a dinner last week at Merton College for female researchers.

DPAG Women’s Dinner at Merton College on Wednesday 24th May 2017 at which Professor Helen Christian summarised plans for our Athena Swan submission. 

Held once or twice a year, the Merton dinners allow senior women scientists to meet more junior academic staff and postdoctoral fellows and encourage open discussion, sharing of experiences and exchange of advice. 

They are designed not only to catch up on Departmental and University news and events, but also to discuss particular topics, such as the EJRA.
