About this Event

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

We apologize for any inconveniences. Thank you very much for your interest and we will notify you on our future events.

The WiEST Symposiums feature prominent women in engineering, science, and technology. Showcasing their achievements is an important and opportune platform for encouraging and inspiring young women in our society to embark on careers and contribute to the world by not only engaging in but also persisting in the curiosity-driven world of engineering, science, and technology.

DNA will be taking center stage in the 2020 edition. The leading ladies in the field will give talks, both short and long, highlighting the discoveries and the implications on human health. They have been advancing our knowledge on how DNA is packed and organized in our cells and will also share the advancement of techniques that enable scientists study our genes.
