The Women in Science, Japan (WiSJ) is a group formed under the leadership of eight Japanese female scientists who gathered in 2019 with the desire to help young female scientists play an active role in the research field of Chromatin Biology.
We will hold an international symposium entitled the International Symposium for Women Researchers in Chromatin Biology (ISFRCB), in order to promote friendship among the participants and to help young women researchers become successful scientists in this field. We invite well-known female principal investigators from around the world and will work together to promote careers, mentor colleagues and students, discuss laboratory organization and advise on the many difficulties one encounters while combining a professional career in research with other personal responsibilities.
→ Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, the ISFRCB2020 will be held ONLINE on Saturday, December 5th.
