Our mission is to tackle these unjust standards against women in the biomedical field by providing a platform that will empower aspiring, female biomedical scientists to work towards total equality between the sexes. Through advocacy, education,and social networking, we aim to create a united enterprise behind female engagement in biomedical sciences.
Our vision is to educate young females about the current feats and issues facing female leaders in biomedical science to promote global female engagement in BME and beyond. We also look to provide scholarships for girls in middle and high school to participate in lab research courses where students will interact with collegiate-level techniques and technology in BME.
