Valérie Orsat wins ‘Engineering and Physical Sciences’ Suffrage Science award
Bioresource engineering prof cited for research excellence and role as mentor for women entering the field
Congratulations to Prof. Valérie Orsat (BRE), one of twelve recipients of the 2021 Suffrage Science Award! The timing of the award – announced on International Women’s Day – is entirely intentional. Founded by the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) ten years ago, the Suffrage Science awards celebrate women in science for their outstanding scientific research, communication work, and support of women in STEM. The original Suffrage Science awards went to women researchers in the life sciences. The engineering and physical sciences branch was added in 2013, and maths and computing in 2016.
