    • Topics vary from gender disparity among biotechnology’s Scientific Advisory Boards, to starting a lab while starting a family, to unequal pay and distribution of funding.
  • Power Analysis (2019)
    • After acknowledging that power differentials exist, can scientists find inspiration to persevere anyway with a benevolent hierarchy built upon diversity, selflessness, and the duality of being both a teacher and student? 
  • How Does She Do It? (2013)
    • Featuring stories of women who have managed to balance both a successful scientific career and a family. How do they do it?

  • Antidote to Toxic Principal Investigators (2020)
    • Nature Medicine: there is a pervasive problem in academia of principal investigators who abuse their powers and mistreat their trainees. This article shares suggestions that would help protect the trainees and ultimately reduce the number of toxic supervisors.
  • Increasing gender diversity in the STEM research workforce (2019)
    • Based on a CSHL Banbury Conference: “ We outline here specific, potentially high-impact policy changes that build upon existing mechanisms for research funding and governance and that can be rapidly implemented to counteract barriers facing women in science”
  • Advancing women in science, medicine, and global health (2019)
    • “Collectively, the theme issue lays out robust evidence to inform an action plan for institutional leaders to confront gender bias, improve diversity and inclusivity, and drive change. Strategies to redress inequalities are not just women’s issues—they require the full participation of everyone in deeper explanations and solutions.”
