However, were at WIRE are celebrating ace research by women in science every single day: We’re blown away by Kornelia’s efforts in tackling ovarian cancer by utilizing the so-called SPOCK1 protein as well as Joana’s attempts to better monitor wildfires in tropical ecosystems form above the ground via satellites. Carla’s efforts as an experimental petrologist to better understand what happens pressure-wise deep down underneath volcanoes are stunning. Also we’re amazed by Madalina’s important insights into nature narratives and why, in the context of climate change, there is an urgency to reflect on how nature and gender are narrated in our medicalized, patriarchal societies.
