Learn more about all the winners from each year of the awards since their inauguration. Every awards season there are 10 awardees from research backgrounds and 1 awardee for communication.

The beauty of the Suffrage Science award scheme is that each recipient nominates who they want to pass their heirloom onto to create a network of inspiring and supportive women. You can see the lineage of each Life Sciences heirloom in each column below.

Professor Claire Rougeulle

Claire is interested in the connection between epigenetics and the environment and the idea that, by inducing heritable and reversible epigenetic changes to a cell or an organism, the environment can modify its identity in the long term. Her nominator, Dr Déborah Bourc'his, said "She is a great researcher who is not afraid to think outside of the box."
