Famous Women in Science: Navigating in a Man’s World – Barbarba T. Zimmerman, PhD, Founder of Biomedical Communication and Consulting


Barbara T. Zimmerman

Women scientists have often been stereotyped as “geeks” or “nerds” who may be brilliant but not really feminine according to the standards of the dominant males of their generation.

Dr. Zimmerman will talk about some famous women in science and highlight their accomplishments as well as unique obstacles and challenges they faced in becoming scientists. She will also discuss alternative fields that are attracting them and her own experience in the biomedical field.
