Blaszczak W., Ahmed A., Leithner K., Schubert A., Leech M., Bonder C., Tsagakis I.
Diversity in research teams ties alternative perspectives into research projects, and this can fast-forward scientific progress. Concerted efforts have been aimed at encouraging and supporting women to pursue a career in science, yet a gender disparity can still be observed at senior positions, with fewer women in leadership roles. To get insight into how the current landscape for women in science is perceived by different career stages, we interviewed female authors of Molecular Oncology from diverse career stages and disciplines about their inspiration, challenges they have faced as scientists as well as their thoughts on how gender diversity can be further enhanced.
