The Academic Women’s Forum is a network led by Professor Christi Deaton (PHPC), Dr Stefanie Reichelt (CRUK) and Dr Helle Jorgensen (Medicine) and supported by the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre. The Forum provides the opportunity for senior and trainee academic women to meet, share advice, talk about their experiences and develop ways to support each other. We hold regular get-togethers on the Biomedical Campus to meet colleagues, share advice and experience, and develop ways to support both senior and junior academic women.
Professor Sadaf Farooqi has recently launched a series on Women Leaders of Today and Tomorrow, that will feature monthly outstanding women speakers from across a variety of disciplines and roles.
