Welcome to the second installment of our Women in STEM gallery! Continuing our yearly tradition of highlighting scientists who work in fields that have historically been underrepresented by women, we are excited to spotlight five more researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and their words of advice for the next generation of female scientists. In the first part of this series, we featured scientists working in fields ranging from injury research to neurobiology.
