CUNY’s Women of Science

Check out the article on Women of Science from CUNY Newswire

“The inspiration [CUNY female science professors] provide to the University, with its 60 percent female student body, is clear. In an effort to spread the word about these faculty members and their ongoing, important work in labs and with accomplished students year-round at all CUNY colleges, the University is spotlighting its women scientists on its web pages and on posters headlined “Breaking Boundaries in Science Research.””
