Video portraits of inspiring women in translational medicine

Public perception of science is still dominated by the image of men, and male scientists are interviewed and quoted more frequently in the media than their female colleagues. Therefore, the BIH wants to represent women scientists with its portrait series and illustrate their inspiring contribution to translational research, from basic research to clinical application. In 2018, BIH accompanied the following scientists to get an insight about their amazing research at the BIH translational research commons (BIH, Charité and Max Delbrück Center). Science is diverse!
