Meg’s paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showing that administration of the hemostatic nanoparticles can improve survival after blast trauma has been covered by a number of news organizations. We’re very excited by the interest.
One of the things that hasn’t been covered is that this was a strong, team effort and 6 of the 7 authors are women. In a time where there are lots of calls for more women in science coupled with questions about why women do not succeed in science, I think it is important to show the role women can play. This team has done some incredible work and is continuing to work to develop new potential therapies.
