As part of the FMHLS 2021 International Women's Day Programme, the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences has funded a virtual screening of PICTURE A SCIENTIST for all staff and students at Queen's University.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.


Wednesday 10 March at 10.00 am (UK Standard Time) - The film will be available in a virtual screening room for 72 hours.
