STS research fellow in MRC Suffrage Science event

5 March 2013

STS Research Fellow, Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock (MBE) has been mentioned by UCL Provost in his 04 March 2013 newsletter:

Clare Elwell, Professor of Medical Physics in UCL Medical Physics & Bioengineering, and Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Honorary Research Associate at UCL Physics & Astronomy [and a research fellow in STS department of science and technology studies], on their selection as two of the 12 female scientists taking part in this year's MRC Suffrage Science event on 8 March, International Women's Day. The researchers, whose selection is based on their excellent work in physical sciences or engineering with medical applications, will receive a bespoke heirloom piece of jewellery from descendants of Emmeline Pankhurst in a tea-room ceremony designed to recall those of the women's suffrage movement. At a subsequent ceremony in 2015, they will pass on the pieces to another group of excellent female scientists and engineers, in a programme conceived by UCL Council member Vivienne Parry to promote the retention of women in scientific careers and particularly leadership roles. Vivienne Parry will also host a debate on whether Nobel prize-winning physicist Marie Curie would have made it as a woman in science today.
