A Department of Neuroscience researcher has become part of the inaugural executive committee of the newly announced International Women in Multiple Sclerosis (iWiMS) network.
Dr Vilija Jokubaitis is one of 12 committee members in the iWiMS and is overseeing mentorship within it.
The organisation officially announced itself this month in The Lancet Neurology.
It has developed over the past 12 months into a group of more than 250 members representing 25 countries, drawing members from basic science through to clinical research, from medical and scientific trainees to specialist consultant-neurologists and senior principal investigators to those working in allied health.
