One of our colleagues Dr Phyllis Awor is among the recipients of the 2017 'Gro Brundtland Award' which offers winners an opportunity to meet and discuss with other female researchers in the same field and establish the international connection.
The award offers five winners a great chance to introduce their own research to other international research groups and it promotes future collaborations between institutions.
Dr Awor who is a post doc is currently attending the Gro Brundtland Week in Taiwan where is presenting her work. The event also emphasises building a network and support system among female scientists from different countries.
