PODCAST - Ieva Plikusienė - Our Contemporary Superheroine
The 11th of February marks the United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science. On this day, we remember and honour the achievements of women, both known and unknown, who have paved the way for those of us in science today and promote full and equal access to and participation in science and technology for women and girls.
On this episode of “Daughters of Marie” we introduce you to Ieva Plikusienė, top-class researcher, Associate Professor at Vilnius University, and winner of the renowned L'ORÉAL Baltic Award for Women in Science. Her research has made a significant contribution to the development of measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and her work and dedication are enormous sources of inspiration to young girls who dream about a career in STEM. Ieva is a contemporary superheroine and the archetype of the SPEAR women in science we like and admire.
Speakers: Ieva Plikusienė and Jelena Lazic
