OPDC's Prof. Stephanie Cragg featured in Profiles of Women in Science series in European Journal of Neuroscience

Professor Stephanie Cragg was recently interviewed for the European Journal of Neuroscience's feature, 'Profiles of Women in Science'. 

Professor Cragg is the co-lead of theme 3 in OPDC and was recently invited to give the The European Journal of Neuroscience special lecture at the 2018 FENS Forum in Berlin, Germany, where she spoke on Trees and gates: Dopamine axon arbours as filters of dopamine output.

The aim of the feature is "to bring well-deserved and long-overdue recognition to successful women throughout [the neuroscience] community and to provide perspective, insight and advice for young scientists trying to make their way in this very competitive time". 

Steph, who sits on DPAG's Athena SWAN Committee, talks about how she decided to become a neuroscientist, the potential difficulties women face balancing a career and children, and how she juggles all her other commitments, such as teaching, with her research.
