Celebrating the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science with Professor Melinda Duer and Charlotte Allerton
Open to: 
Alumni and guests

Our two guest speakers are both alumni of the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry. Professor of Biological and Biomedical Chemistry Melinda Duer and Pfizer’s Head of Medicine Design Charlotte Allerton discussed their recent topical research, as well as their journeys as women in science, as we supported the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science and recognised the contribution so many women have made to Chemistry.

Deputy Head of Department Dr Nick Bampos, in his role as Equality Champion & Athena Swan Committee Chair, introduced the webinar and moderated an interactive question and answer session with the speakers.
