In a world where they are still under-represented, several female scientists have emerged as movers and shakers in their fields. Some are breaking new ground across various disciplines. What issues and challenges do they face? Will more step forward to follow those who have made seminal contributions? Who are the rising talents? This new podcast series by Women in Science at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine spotlights the work and successes of women scientists, alongside their challenges and aspirations. We explore what it takes to achieve high-impact research in a world where the work of women scientists have gained traction in biomedical sciences and beyond.

Synopsis: In the second episode, we feature two of our inaugural LKCMedicine Early Researcher Network (LEARN) award winners: Research Fellow Dr Bilge Ercan from Yasunori Saheki lab and Research Fellow Dr Dorrain Low from John Chambers lab.

The LEARN annual awards celebrate the outstanding efforts of early scientists towards excellence in LKCMedicine. The awards recognise their contributions in research excellence, mentorship and community service.
