Additionally, our cutting-edge research expertise ensures that the latest techniques are taught using the most advanced equipment. Finally, we offer innovative master's courses led by world leading experts, providing a truly research-based learning experience delivered by some of the greatest minds in science and medicine today.

Showcasing Women in the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Science

As part of ‘Vote 100, Celebrating UCL’s Women’, and inspired by ‘UCL Female Firsts’, the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Science is showcasing the achievements of women in the division from both our academic and professional services teams.

We currently have the first profiles of three women at each of our three campuses – Bloomsbury, Stanmore and the Royal Free, which will be rotated roughly once per month and following this a new set of profiles will go up.

Currently being profiled are:

  • Dr. Sara Ajami, Research Associate, Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science
  • Dr. Katerina Stamati, Research Associate, Department of Surgical Biotechnology
  • Jessica Robinson, Teaching Administrator, Sports Medicine, Exercise & Health MSc, Performing Arts Medicine MSc, and Pain Management MSc

Vote 100, Celebrating UCL’s Women is a collection of programmes, exhibitions and events highlighting the pioneering work of women at UCL celebrating 100 years since women first won the right to vote.

Female Firsts’ (one such exhibition), is an art exhibition by UCL Artist in residence Kristina Clackson Bonnington who is producing 12 artworks about extraordinary pioneering women connected to UCL. ‘Female Firsts’ has been on display in the South Cloisters from 12 March 2018. The project launched to honour International Women’s day in March 2018. Every three months three new art works are being added, culminating with the 12 works shown in their entirety in December. The final exhibition in December will coincide with the centenary of the first time women in the UK voted in a general election, which took place on 14 December 1918.

‘Showcasing Women in the Division of Surgery & Interventional Science’ is an Athena SWAN Initiative supported by the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Science.
