MIDLAND, Ontario - April 3, 2014 - PRLog -- METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of theWomen in Science Interview Series in conjunction with LabX Media Group and the Scientista Foundation.While women are as likely as men to major in the sciences asundergraduates, they remain underrepresented in the leadership oflaboratories throughout the world. Countries like the United States,which is already struggling to remain competitive in an increasinglysophisticated global science scene, lose ground every time a womanchooses to put her scientific curiosity on hold and seek alternate careers.

To celebrate the accomplishments of women in science, and to inspire other women to follow in their footsteps, METTLER TOLEDO has partnered with The Scientista Foundation and LabX Media Group to conducta series of six interviews with influential North American scientists to highlight their achievements andcontributions, and to ask them what advice they have for the next generation of scientific pioneers.

The women selected for our interviews have shown ingenuity, not just in tackling everyday challenges that come with the leadership roles they hold, which are often enormous, but also in the ways they have approached the frustrating scarcity of female leaders in their fields.

First Interviewee—Dr. Elodie Ghedin

Hosted by Elise Andrew, founder of Facebook’s fastest growing science page “I F*cking Love Science,” the interviews will air the second week of every month from April through September. The first interview, scheduled to be released officially on April 11 at will feature Dr. Elodie Ghedin.

Dr. Ghedin, a Professor in New York University’s Department of Biology, is one of the world’s foremost parasitologists whose work focuses primarily on the evolutionary genomics of infectious agents, neglected tropical diseases, microbiome, and virus metagenomic studies. Her pioneering work in harnessing the power of genomic sequencing techniques to generate critical insights about human pathogens won her a prestigious MacArthur Grant in 2011.
