As Suffrage Women in Science Award holder, Kerstin was invited to this year’s Science Award ceremony at the Royal Society in London on March 8, 2019. The Suffrage Science scheme was founded by the Medical Research Council’s London Institute of Medical Sciences. It celebrates and inspires women in science, creating a self-perpetuating cohort of talent that will encourage others to enter science and reach senior leadership roles.

Kerstin nominated Prof. Tiny De Keuster University of Ghent, Belgium, to receive the next Women in Science Award and has handed on the heirloom to her. The heirloom will be kept for 2 years and then move on to the next recipient.
