100 years since women were admitted as full members of the University of Oxford, women now hold vital posts at all levels of this institution.

Across 16 departments and numerous affiliated units, the women of the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over the world.

100 of these women took part in this project to showcase diversity of roles they now hold. Each of them represents countless more working in our labs and clinics, in our offices and in our lecture theatres to make MSD and the University a better place.

Meet those based in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences:
