Join National AWIS for a webinar with Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author.


Through a combination of research and storytelling, Marie Benedict is on a mission to unearth the untold stories of brilliant women like Mileva Einstein and Hedy Lamarr. 

What lessons can you learn from these historical women in science and apply to your career? Join us on September 29th to find out! 

In this live Q&A, Marie will discuss why she has chosen this mission, the books she has written, and the recurring hurdles that women in science and other fields continue to surmount:

  • gender discrimination
  • self-efficacy
  • career pivots
  • work-life integration
  • racial discrimination (a theme at the center of her upcoming June 2021 book release)


This event is free for AWIS members.

Join Seattle AWIS and speaker Carolina Heimann as we we dive into immunooncology research.

Immuno-oncology (IO) is one of the most promising areas of cancer research, with IO-based treatments demonstrating high efficacy within certain cancer types and subsets of patients. To broaden the utility of these therapies to more patients, fundamental research is required to improve our understanding of tumor-immune interactions—allowing the next-generation of therapeutics and treatment strategies to emerge.
