Women in Science

"Women in Science (WiS) is a network of female PhD students from CiM labs. WiS invites renowned female scientists from across the globe to Münster. Invited scientists present their work within the “Pioneers in Cell Dynamics and Imaging” lecture series, and the network organises informal exchanges with the speakers to get insight into some of the prevalent challenges, discuss career decisions and offer guidance, especially for female scientists in-the-making. WiS encourages students from different disciplines to participate, growing the team further. Regular meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month."
