Professor Barbara Sahakian features in podcast celebrating Ada Lovelace day

The Institute of Psychiatry (IOP) marked Ada Lovelace Day by creating a podcast of staff and students celebrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) women who had inspired them. Ada Lovelace Day creates new role models for girls and women by raising the profile of other women in traditionally male-dominated STEM fields.

The women featured in this recording are: Professor Francesca Happé speaking about Professor Uta Frith; Dr Helen Fisher on Professor Terrie Moffitt; Clare Dolman, IoP PhD student, on Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison; Dr Rina Dutta speaking about the late Professor Lyn Pilowsky and Jackie Robbins, IoP PhD student, on Professor Barbara Sahakian.

The podcast can be found here and you can find out more about Ada Lovelace and the Ada Lovelace Day initiative here.
