周五读书会“Lab Girl”,感谢四位嘉宾!不同领域的业界翘楚,和华府的众多学子、书友们,分享了科研之旅的春华秋实、酸甜苦辣!

除了智武教授是翩翩先生,另外三名嘉宾皆是女性科学家,她们也从女性视角,畅谈了挑战、机遇与冀望。

Dr Shao在大伽云集的顶级研究所,做神经科学研究,她的同事有多名诺贝尔奖获得者,一直很好奇,和若干“诺奖得主”共事,会有什么样的感悟,Dr Shao平易、风趣又热忱的把我们带进了科研巅峰的Wonderland.

Dr Fang也诚挚、恳切地分享了她在NIH的科研之旅,身为Lab Manager 的她还给热爱科研、有志STEM的莘莘学子,提供了们宝贵建议与资讯。

远在West Virginia 的Yakun是北美极小众的female“放射物理学家”(Radiation Physicist),      她娓娓道来Passion和Curiosity 如何支撑你科海遨游。
