With an impressive pedigree of academic credentials from a BA in Chemistry at Oxford to a PhD in applied science at Harvard, Professor Murray is well-positioned to focus on the actual role of science as the co-Director of MIT's Innovation Initiative. She brings substance, sensitivity, and experience to help us understand the critical roles of science and innovation. Her presentation will address the need to be working across sectors, across disciplines, and the compelling need to open more seats at the table (bench...).

Whether within universities like MIT, or at small risk-taking start-ups, the critical future is in innovation. Her work begins with students but also helps guide and identify new and emerging opportunities in the private sector including new work in impact investing and the role of VCs in creating our future. And of course, who is in the room/lab! 

The Rosalind Franklin Society recognizes and celebrates the contributions of outstanding women in the life sciences and affiliated disciplines, promotes broadened opportunities for women in the sciences, and through its many activities motivates new generations of women to this calling.  The Society honors the achievements of Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958), a British x-ray crystallographer whose extraordinary work, though largely overlooked and under-appreciated at the time, was crucial to the discovery of DNA’s structure by James Watson and Francis Crick.  The powerful symbolism of her remarkable story drives the Society’s agenda.
