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. Eleanor Tillett, Co-Course Lead MSc in Sports Medicine, Exercise & Health, Honorary Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine
- Dr, Maryam Tamaddon, Research Associate in the Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science
- Miss Maxine Tran, Senior Lecturer in Renal Cancer Surgery and Honorary Consultant Urological Surgeon
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.
