KITE celebrates the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

The KITE Research Institute is once again proud to celebrate The International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

Each year, more and more young women chose to pursue a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and we are humbled by the growing number of them who have decided to pursue their scientific dreams with us.

Our success at KITE would not be possible without the incredible contributions and talent of a diverse team of trainees, scientists and staff who have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of those affected by injury, illness and aging. 

Today, we are thrilled to profile three outstanding trainees in order to learn about the inspiration behind their pursuit of a career in STEM, challenges they have encountered (and how they overcame them), the important role of  female mentors and why they think it’s important to have diverse voices in the lab.
