Geographical movement to another country in the name of academic pursuits inevitably presents with hurdles. This forum is intended to highlight some of the challenges faced by women in coming to the UK, such as language, cultural, domestic, social and financial issues. The speakers will present some of these challenges drawn from their personal experiences and give an insight into how they coped. Speakers include Professor Adina Michael-Titus (Barts and the London, SMD), Professor Federica Marelli-Berg (Barts and the London, SMD), Dr Nathalie Lebrasseur (SBCS) and Dr. Noha Seoudi (Barts and the London, SMD). The event will be followed by a panel discussion and lunch will be provided.
