Celebrating Women in Science

The Mass General Research Institute is made up of numerous centers, labs and researchers within the Massachusetts General Hospital. We are incredibly grateful to be a part of such a large community of innovative scientists.

One of our centers, the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, recently highlighted several of their researchers to support women in science, and we thought we would spread the love!

Read on to get to know a few of the inspiring women in science at the 
Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging.
