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.

 “In the series “33 questions” we introduce, in no particular order, our WIRE Fellows who are currently working on a research project here at the University of Münster. Why 33? Well, if we think of the rush hour of life, it is kind of the age that lies in its middle. And we also like the number. 

In today’s episode we are speaking with Tatiana Falcão, an international tax lawyer and avid supporter of carbon tax regimes.

The WIRE – Women in Research Fellowship 2020 has started. Eight amazing Post-Docs are being part of this round’s programme.

Ever wondered how science fights bush fires from above the sky? Why gods of Palmyra might still be relevant today? Did you know that there are certain molecules that can harvest energy from the sun and can be used to translate it into chemical energy? Did you know that there is a protein called SPOCK1, which seems to be responsible for a very aggressive form of ovarian cancer and can probably be utilized as a cancer marker? Have you ever heard of “nature narratives” and why it is well worth diving into?

In the series “33 Questions for” we introduce, in no particular order, our WiRe Fellows who are currently working on a research project here at the University of Münster. Why 33?

In our final episode we are speaking with Angélique, neurobiologist and passionate lover of drosophila flies, “confocals”, scalpels, the beauty of nature – even in such creatures as flies – and of course her current research on the so-called circadian clock. Have a look for yourself and check out our short documentary about “The Lady of the Flies” Angélique:
