Ahead of this year's International Women and Girls in Science Day this Sunday 11th, we have interviewed Dr Vasiliki Mavirdou for our next Women in Pharmacology interview series!

You can find her interview, and our previous interviews, on our Women in Pharmacology page.

The International Women and Girls in Science Day celebrates women and girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and the vital work they do. By celebrating and increasing the visibility of women and girls in STEM, we can inspire the next generation of female scientists and help overcome the gender divide.

We would also like to highlight the following lecture for the day:
