50% of the world’s population are women, yet they are woefully underrepresented in the technology and health innovation sector.

The aim of the panel was to discuss the topics with leading Russian women innovators, who shared their experience and knowledge on their best practice.

Kristina Zakurdaeva
MD, PhD, Founder of Foundation for Cancer Research Support in Russia, Chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors
Anna Kudryavtseva
Head of the Laboratory of Postgenomic Studies at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology (EIMB), Russian Academy of Sciences
Liana Oganezova
