Suffrage Science award to Lola
DrosAfrica founder Dolores Martín Bermudo (Centro Andaluz de Biología del Desarrollo) has received the prestigious 2021 Suffrage Science award in the Engineering and Physical Sciences. Suffrage Science pioneer Professor Fisher said: “We dreamed up the awards scheme to celebrate the contribution that women have made to science, which often gets overlooked. This is as important now as it was ten years ago. This year’s awardees join a community of over 148 women scientists. I’m thrilled that since 2011, the awards have travelled from the UK, across Europe to the USA, Hong Kong, Iran and to Ghana, illustrating the international nature of science and engineering, and the global effort to improve the representation of women in STEM.” Congratulations Lola!
