Our PhD students Sara and Irene participate in the Día Internacional de la Mujer y la Niña en la Ciencia «Cuéntame11F»

Our PhD students Sara and Irene have recorded a video showing their daily work in the lab for the Women and Girls in Science day.

In our lab, we are committed to Gender Equality; we believe that gender is a social construct, and it is not relevant to determine the competency of a person.

In this video, we show our work to encourage and motivate young girls to develop their scientific career. You are not alone!

Here is to Rosalind Franklin, Nettie Stevens, Lise Meitner, Jocelyn Bell, Nubia Muñoz and many more forgotten women; you are our inspiration.
