"Determination, leadership and motivation, are some of the qualities that stand out to our UC Researchers. Women who, from different areas, make a difference and actively contribute to the common good.

It is a pride for us to have outstanding academics who every day combine the challenges of daily life with the great questions that actively contribute to the development of knowledge and its impact.
