International Women and Girls in Science Day
February 11th is International Women and Girls in Science Day. A joint UNESCO and UN-Women initiative, it aims to promote the role of #WomenInScience and to challenge some of the barriers to girls pursuing a career in science.
The ongoing pandemic has clearly demonstrated the important contribution of women to science including their role in advancing our understanding of the COVID-19 virus, finding diagnostics and treatments and developing vaccines.
At Cromos Pharma we are proud of the role women play within our company and pleased to support career development for women in clinical research.

We will continue to champion the role of women and girls in this area.
