In this article, we look at the extent of the issue and speak with some of the women that are working tirelessly to combat sexual harassment in STEM through a variety of organizations.


Making Neuroscience More Credible at BNA 2019


At the British Neuroscience Association's Festival of Neuroscience 2019, we pulled aside one of the BNA's credibility board, Dr Verena Heise to ask her about credibility in neuroscience, how she became involved in promoting it, and how other players in research can help advance the credibility cause.

Here, we look at how WES is used in both the laboratory and the clinic, and why it is a preferred method of choice in such areas.
