Cosmic Superheroes: Women in STEM in Manchester

Join us in celebrating the ‘superpowers’ of leading female performers and scientists:

As part of a series of International Womens’ Day celebration events, The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, in association with The Cosmic Shambles Network, will be welcoming physicist Dr Helen Czerski in conversation with some of the UK’s leading female science voices; Professor of Biomedical Sciences and Public Engagement Sheena Cruickshank, psychologist and epidemiologist Dr Suzi Gage and science communicator, Ginny Smith.

All four, along with others, were part of the CSN’s Cosmic Superheroes, a unique photographic celebration of the superpowers it has taken for women at the forefront of the worlds of Arts and Science to establish themselves as superheroes in their individual fields. The images can be viewed at

Free event: Roscoe Building, Manchester University.
