About this Research Topic
Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes have discouraged women from pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by United Nations.
Gender Equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a progressive society. However, Women in Science are often underrepresented and unacknowledged. On the path to defeating stereotypes, women researchers are working towards answering some of the most important questions in Science.
The coronavirus outbreak has worsened the existing inequalities for women across every sphere, including research. In spite of the odds, women researchers continue to prove pivotal to several crucial scientific advances.
The Women in Respiratory Physiology and Pathophysiology 2022 Research Topic offers a platform to showcase women’s impact in the field, together with their resilience to grow and support their achievements. This Research Topic aims to highlight the work led and achieved by women in the field of Respiratory Physiology and Pathophysiology. Submissions covering any area of Respiratory Physiology and Pathophysiology are welcome and those covering the following themes are encouraged:
- lung development throughout the life course
- respiratory physiology and pathophysiology in health and disease
- advances in respiratory physiology and pathophysiology methods.
For more information on the description and formats of the different article types please see here.
We strongly encourage the submission of manuscripts where the lead/last or corresponding author identifies as female, and we recommend early career researchers to team up with senior female colleagues. Co-authors can be of any gender.
