Wellcome Collection and 'The Times' invite you to join a panel of experts to discuss whether gender plays a role for those working in science. Why are there far fewer women running British laboratories and learned societies? Are there differences in the brain that mean that male and female scientists approach their work differently? And is there any evidence that men and women are more suited to different scientific disciplines? This is your chance to put your questions to the experts and find out more about the stories behind the headlines.

Speakers

Dame Athene Donald, Professor of Experimental Physics, University of Cambridge
Keith Laws, Professor of Cognitive Neuropsychology, University of Hertfordshire
Ottoline Leyser, Professor of Biology, University of York and author of 'Mothers in Science: 64 ways to have it all'
