Women In Microwaves Panel Session and Network Event – Joint with IMBioC2018: 

Panel and Networking Event:      

Thursday, 14 June 2018
Location: Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts 
Time: 19:00-21:00

This year’s event will emphasize building a network of women who work in microwaves and RF, as well as building an informal mentoring network that enables women to connect with other women of all ages and across industry, academia and biotechnology.  Our Thursday events topic is 'Women in Engineering: Academia, Defense, Industry and now into BioTech'.

Guest Speaker:

Prof. Caterina Merla  will speak on "Working at the frontier of engineer and biology: focus on linear and non-linear optical micro spectroscopy to understand electropulsation mechanisms on cells".

This is a great opportunity for attendees to connect with the WIM speakers and network with fellow women engineers in the RF and microwave industry. Don't miss this chance to unwind over some food and beverages while soaking in the art that the PAFA exhibits. Men, if you would like to attend, please don't forget to bring a female friend to this event!

We look forward to seeing you there!
