Women in Life Science

Imaginative and pioneering women have always endeavored to push the boundaries of life science research to new heights, providing invaluable contributions that have reshaped our world. From Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female physician in the U.S.; to Rosalyn Yalow, Ph.D. the first female to win both the Lasker and Nobel prizes; to Emmanuelle Charpentier, Ph.D., and Jennifer Doudna, Ph.D, the scientists who laid the groundwork for the development of the CRISPR genome technology. In honor of Women’s History Month, the editors of GEN have assembled this short presentation highlighting some of the most prominent female scientific investigators to date.
