Women in Science and Society Lectures

Organized by SFB 829 and the Rectorate University of Cologne, WISAS lecture series brings prominent female scientists of skin research and associated areas to Cologne to discuss the role of women in science and society. A first lecture aims at the biomedical community. The second lecture is open to the public and addresses how gender issues are perceived in other countries and how other universities deal with it. The speaker will also give insights into her experience in combining a scientific career as a woman with private and family life (work/life balance).

The lectures are open to everybody! We especially encourage young scientists of both genders to attend these lectures.

A complete list of all events can be found here.











The complete WISAS lecture held by Susan Wray on May 9th 2017 can be watched  here.
