Director's Notes:
St Louis WISE, 2017
March is Women’s History Month and it makes me think of some of the great female researchers and scientists in Missouri who are leading the way for young women: Dean Elizabeth Loboa and Dean Carolyn Henry of the University of Missouri; Jenny Lodge and Annaliese Schaefer of Washington University; and Dean Michelle Sabick at Saint Louis University.  

This year Missouri Cures will celebrate the fifth year of the St Louis Women in Science & Entrepreneurship (WISE) conference. I would like to thank all of you who have supported and attended the event each year. We now hold WISE events around the state. We have been in Kansas City, Columbia, St Joseph and Springfield. Stayed tuned for more details on our 2018 WISE events.  

Starting next month, we will feature “Wise Women” in the newsletter and on our social media. We would like to showcase women who are excelling in the field of science and research. Please let me know if you know of a woman who should be featured. Also, send us images of your work to feature on our website and social media. Some of the images will be selected to be displayed at our 2018 WISE events. 

Warmest Regards,

Dena Ladd
