International Women's Day
Today on the 8th March 2022, let's take a quick visit to the Covid 19 Memorial Wall along the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament. 1/3 of a mile of hearts and messages from the bereaved families adorn this unofficial monument. It's a chance to reflect on the last two years but also to pay tribute to some stellar women scientists who contributed to the vaccines which have helped combat this virus. Sarah Gilbert, Catherine Green and Teresa Lambe were all part of the team at Oxford University who developed the Oxford/Astra-Zeneca vaccine. Thank you to them.
