Event description
Join our panel to discuss how we raise the profile of women working in science.

About this Event

A 2014 YouGov poll reported that most UK adults couldn't name a living female scientist.

This panel will debate whether efforts to improve public knowledge of female scientists are working.

Chaired by Christine Grahame MSP, Deputy Presiding Officer at the Scottish Parliament, this panel includes:

  • Professor Niamh Nic Daéid FRS, Professor of Forensic Science and Director of Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee and expert witness in the Grenfell Tower public inquiry
  • Professor Joanna Wardlaw, Chair of Applied Neuroimaging & Head of Neuroimaging Sciences and Edinburgh Imaging
  • Professor Raffaella Ocone OBE, Professor of Chemical Engineering at Heriot-Watt University

This event is run in partnership with the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
