Highlighting women researchers

To celebrate Women’s Day 2021 and the 50th anniversary of women's right to vote in Switzerland, all 22 National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCRs) across Switzerland have been working together to publish a series of videos showcasing their women researchers. The videos are targeted at women and girls of school and undergraduate age to show what day to day life as a scientist is like and make it more accessible. Until October 31, each NCCR aims to host a week where they publish videos covering multiple scientific disciplines.

It was the NCCR Bio-Inspired Materials turn this week, with three videos featuring Principal Investigators Katharina Fromm Giese (University of Fribourg, Department of Chemistry), Barbara Rothen-Rutishauser (University of Fribourg, Adolphe Merkle Institute, NCCR Equal Opportunities Delegate), and PhD student Ivana Domljanovic (University of Fribourg, Department of Oncology, Microbiology, and Immunology).
