For Women’s History Month, we are highlighting the many inspiring women who are making history in science and medicine! From students to field leaders, across academia and industry, women scientists are pioneering new discoveries and leading the charge towards advances with clinical and global health impacts.
This week’s blog post features women in Infectious Disease and Global Health Research from around the world, and their work on immune responses and vaccine development against pathogens from coronavirus to tuberculosis, and beyond. Representing The University of Cape Town, The University of Hong Kong, The International Livestock Research Institute and the United States NIH, these rising stars are dedicated to finding better ways to prevent, treat and eventually eradicate the world’s greatest infectious disease threats.
