The Medical College of Wisconsin invites the public to attend the Women in Science (WIS) Series. Women in Science is an opportunity to meet outstanding female scientists and physicians and learn about their cutting-edge research.
The Women in Science Series is a membership program with five enlightening presentations, in lay language, designed to draw attention to scientific research projects at MCW as well as generate support for female scientists who serve as role models and mentors.
The successful WIS Series has been going strong since 2007.
