When asked about female pioneers in science, most people recall famous physicists such as Lise Meitner and Marie Curie. „But few know about the women who played key roles in the evolution of science from the East,“ said Radwa Khalil, a neuroscientist at Jacobs University and postdoctoral fellow to professor Ben Godde. To contribute to a broader perception of the topic, which might even advance today’s gender roles, scientists from Jacobs University and Australia’s Western Sydney University cooperated on a recently published book – crossing various disciplines and geographical regions.
