The University of Illinois Archives is hosting a monthly Women in Science Lecture Series that will feature speakers from across the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s diverse and multidisciplinary scientific enterprise. The lecture series seeks to highlight the important innovations and contributions of women in the sciences at the University of Illinois, and center the importance of documenting women scientists and engineers to create a diverse and inclusive archival record. This lecture series will take place over Zoom on the second Tuesday of every month from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.
We hope you can join us for the September lecture! Dr. Margarita Terán-Garcia, Assistant Dean for Integrated Health Disparities Programs and Assistant Professor of Nutritional Sciences, will share her research on obesity including genetic and environmental influences on obesity and diseases related to obesity.
