Women in Science: ARTORG female researchers 2021

On this year’s "Women in Science Day" (11 February) the ARTORG Center offers glimpses into the diverse fields of biomedical research our female members engage in. With this, we would like to value the essential contribution of women in our research and motivate others to take a peek at our work and maybe apply to one of our next openings.

Browse the interactive picture to learn about the people, their projects and our research groups.
