Women in Science

The Women in Science Floor focuses on increasing the participation and success of women in all fields of science. Under the advisement of Dr. Helen Davies, Professor of Microbiology in the School of Medicine, the group works closely with the Philadelphia chapter of the Association of Women in Science on sponsoring lectures and programs. Together with the Study of Infectious Diseases program community, students are invited to meet with Dr. Davies for a biweekly roundtable on emerging infectious diseases. This program is located on 2nd floor of Coxe/EF Smith.
