She's at it again! Graduate student Sarah Eddy and former postdoc Sara Brownell published a paper in CBE Life Science Education on gender and how it effects gaps in achievement and participation. The study focused on introductory biology classes, which sees a greater ratio of females to males compared to the other STEM subjects. Their research shows that closing the gender gap in science education may require more than just recruitment alone.
Congratulations on not only publishing the paper, but also for being mentioned in this issue of Science - Editor's Choice!
