Invited monthly lecture series highlighting and honoring women leaders in academic research, especially related disciplines of interventional radiology, biomedical engineering, radiology, imaging sciences, data science, and image-guided oncology. The honorary lecture series was established as a small effort to help counter the under-representation of women in academic research and the impact of gender disparity and implicit bias on role modeling and mentoring. Monthly topics are open-ended and are geared toward highlighting successful female or other under-represented academic leaders as role models for trainees.
