MSD launches project to celebrate 100 years since women were admitted as full members of the University.

It's been 100 years since women were admitted as full members of the University of Oxford, and women now hold vital posts at all levels of this institution. Across our 16 departments and numerous affiliated units, the women of the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over the world. In the Division it doesn’t just take a village, it takes a city to do what we do. A city of researchers, professors, clinicians, physiotherapists, research nurses, administrators, fundraisers, students, custodial staff, receptionists, teachers, lecturers, trainers and many, many more. 

MSD asked 100 of these women to take part in a project to showcase diversity of roles they now hold. Launching on Thursday 11 February, each day they will be bringing you a new group of incredible women working across the Medical Sciences Division, each reflecting on their journeys, their place in the Division and their vision for the next 100 years. Each woman represents countless more working in our labs, in our offices, in our lecture theatres to make the Division, the University and the medical sciences a better place.

Visit the MSD website to read the profiles of all 100 women.
