Thursday 13 January 2011, 19.00-20.30
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.
