A multimedia celebration of the women in our Department.

The campaign theme for this year's International Women's Day is #BalanceforBetter - Better Balance, Better World.

International Women’s Day gives the Department an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women and raise the visibility of the women working across a variety roles in DPAG, reflecting our commitment to advancing gender equality and representation across academia and professional services.

Today, we hear from four women, who each make a strong contribution to the research and running of the Department. Here they tell us about their career journeys so far, their work, and what it's like to work at DPAG, plus they share stories about the challenges they have faced, how they manage their work / life balance, along with some sound advice for anyone embarking on a career in science.

A subtitled version of the video is also available to view here. Throughout the day, this video will broadcast on the Department's video wall in the Sherrington Building reception, alongside a slideshow montage of faces that features a broad spectrum of DPAG women.

The Department is also hosting seminars from two female scientists today.

As part of our termly Head of Department Seminar Series, DPAG's Associate Professor Ana Domingos is giving a lecture entitled "Sympathetic Neuroimmunity for Obesity." 

Dr Claire Thorton from King's College London will be giving a special neuroscience seminar entitled "Mitochondrial dysfunction in neonatal brain injury."
