The proportion of women and men in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at undergraduate levels is relatively equal, however, there is a lack of representation of women in senior positions in Medicine. According to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) data in 2016, less than 30% of researchers in STEM are women.

In the field of Nuclear Medicine, there are many highly influential and successful women who are contributing to the field and tackling important questions. Yet, female scientists are still underrepresented in various aspects of academic life. Several initiatives have been recently created to increase the visibility of women in science (e.g., awards for women in STEM). However, evidence indicates that a gender bias is still present throughout many scientific disciplines.

This Research Topic would like to highlight female contributions to Medicine, specifically in the field of Nuclear Medicine and will therefore welcome:

• General perspectives on a specific field of research inspired, started or sparked by a woman

• Articles celebrating outstanding female researchers and their contributions to the field of Medicine and Nuclear Medicine

• Studies led by women researching technology and health

To be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be researchers identifying as female, and we recommend early career researchers to team up with senior female colleagues.

Keywords: Nuclear Medicine, STEM, UNESCO, Health, Medicine

Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
