Top PI Susan Wray: Supporting women in childbirth and research

Susan Wray is professor of cellular and molecular physiology at the University of Liverpool and co-director of the newly opened Harris Wellbeing Preterm Birth Centre. She tells Anna McKie about two strands of her work: women’s reproductive health research and women’s career development in science.

Wray started writing about supporting women to achieve their potential in science in 1994. Since then she’s headed Liverpool’s Athena SWAN gender-equality initiative and now she co-directs the Academy of Medical Science’s Sustain initiative to mentor and support female scientists to develop their careers and leadership skills. The scheme is backed by the Medical Research Council, the Royal Society and the Royal College of Physicians.
