Women in Science

About Us

The WIS Group was born out of the need to make visible and recognize the work performed by women in the area of Delivery Sciences and Technologies. Our vision is to become a reference WIS group with a scientific, translational, educational, and business perspective.

Women in Science Event 2022

Some indicators of the success of the WIS event during the CRS AM are:

  • It has had a high number of attendees despite the cost of the entry ticket
  • It has proven powerful to attract young talent to listen to successful women scientists give an account of their personal and professional journeys to become one of the leading experts in their field
  • It fosters a speak-up culture and attendees have been very forthcoming in asking questions that cannot be asked in other forums where women of all ages discuss powerful topics
