Café Scientifique-YXE

Thank you to everyone who came out to Dr. Elaheh Khozeimeh Sarbisheh‘s talk, “Diagnosing Cancer: a long journey”. We had a blast!

The Café Scientifique talk was a great opportunity to show my research and talk to the public about my everyday life in science as a woman. Communicating science the public is a great skill and it helps bring awareness to all levels of society. As scientists, we tend to focus on our research and sometimes it makes us isolated. We forget that we should communicate our research with the public and tax-payers.

I really appreciate this opportunity and I look forward to more public speaking in the future. This way I will always remember the importance of society in my research and the impact of my research on society. Thank you to Prof. Julia Boughner for organizing these talks and for giving me this wonderful opportunity!
