Women in Science and Health (WISH)

WISH provides scientific and social networking opportunities for faculty in the STEM fields at UAlbany.

The group in turn offers a framework for mentoring female post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates in the STEM fields. WISH was established in 2014 by Elga Wulfert, Professor of Psychology and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Marlene Belfort, Professor of Biology and Scientific Director of the interdisciplinary Life Sciences Research Program. Junior and senior faculty members team up monthly for interdisciplinary scientific presentations and discussions of gender equality and work-life integration. Visit the WISH website.
