LIFE SCIENCES AWARDEES
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.
Denise conducts an innovative program of cognitive neuroscience research that advances our understanding of factors that contribute to memory and cognitive decline in older adults.
Irene is interested in understanding the mechanisms by which organs sense and respond to change: the molecules, cellular events and physiological adaptations involved.
Irene’s nominator, Professor Corinne Houart, said “Alongside her research activities, Irene mentors younger female scientists and actively participates in initiatives to improve the gender balance at senior levels."
Her works, such as the science text Echoes of Life: What Fossil Molecules Reveal about Earth History, and novels Carbon Dreams and Accidentals, are informed by years of study and research in organic chemistry and oceanography.
