At various stages of their scientific careers, these leading ladies talk candidly about their research, what makes them tick and how they view the role of women in the ever competitive world of biomedical research.

Friday 15 March: Focussing on women scientists from Manchester’s history such as Marie Stopes, Kathleen Drew Baker, Margaret Murray and Lydia Becker.
