QBI presents "Science in the Time of Corona", a live show where scientists discuss how COVID-19 has changed science. This week, join us for a discussion with two researchers in the QCRG about the unique impacts that COVID-19 has had on women and mothers in science. 

Some have suggested that working from home presents a setback for women in science, but are there also lessons we can learn or positive changes to carry into the future? In this discussion we will hear from two women in science about their experiences doing research from home during quarantine, and talk about future implications of remote conferences and working from home for women and mothers in science.

Title: “Has COVID-19 Changed How Women and Mothers Do Research, and What Can We Learn From This?”

Panelists:

Danica Fujimori - Professor, Cellular Molecular Pharmacology - QBI | UCSF

Ruth Huttenhain - Assistant Professor, Cellular Molecular Pharmacology - QBI | UCSF

Host: Leila Shokat - Media Anthropology - QBI
