Mission Statement

Female scientists are currently underrepresented at the Faculty of Life Sciences, particularly in Biology. The Women in Biology Initiative seeks to understand the underlying causes and to support the careers of female scientists at all levels, from students to professors. Our vision is to equalize the female-male employment status and leadership at the Faculty.
