Prof. Clemence Corminboeuf interviewed for "100 Women and Thousands More" project

Professor Clémence Corminboeuf, head of the Laboratory for Computational Molecular Design at EPFL and part of MARVEL’s Executive Committee, has been interviewed as part of  “100 Women and Thousands More,” a campaign aiming to show young people – especially girls – the wide range of exciting paths taken by women living in French- and Italian-speaking Switzerland and neighboring France. Most of the women interviewed completed training or pursued careers in fields considered “male” and such career choices are often seen as exceptions to the norm. The multi-partner campaign aims to do away with this misconception by providing role models and challenging prevailing stereotypes.
