Women in Science

The Women in Science Project is a collaboration between the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, a committee of women faculty from the Biological, Physical, and Social Sciences Divisions, and the Office of the Provost. The aim of the project is to organize events that bring women faculty in the sciences at the University together to share their work, make connections around shared research interests, and build community to counter-balance the isolation some of them experience in their departments and laboratories.

The Women in Science Project Organizing Committee:

  • Margaret Gardel, Professor, Physics
  • Karen E. Kim, MD, Professor of Medicine
  • Kay Macleod, Professor, Ben May Department for Cancer Research
  • Ka Yee Lee, Professor, Department of Chemistry and The College; Institute for Biophysical Dynamics
  • Leslie Kay, Professor, Department of Psychology Director
  • Linda Zerilli, Professor, Department of Political Science and The College; Center for Gender Studies
  • Mary Harvey, Associate Provost for Program Development
