St Hugh’s Tutorial Fellow in Biology seeks to improve gender equity in Medical Sciences

This International Day Of Women and Girls In Science, we are highlighting the work of our Tutorial Fellow in Biology at St Hugh’s, Professor Rachel Tanner, to promote gender equity in her field of medical sciences. In particular Rachel seeks to provide opportunities for female students in low-and middle-income countries (where women are particularly under-represented in scientific research and face disproportionate barriers) to collaborate and gain experience and training in her vaccine development laboratory in Oxford. Here she is pictured with a visiting Masters student from Brazil, and below with another Masters student in their laboratory in Thailand following a reciprocal visit. A recent article in Nature highlighted the benefits of female scientists from LMICs spending time working in laboratories abroad (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-03932-4).
