Adele Marston - Parent Carer Scientist

Adele Marston is featured in a Royal Society campaign that shows how scientists successfully combine career and family life.

The Royal Society launched a collection of 150 personal stories from scientists on 7 March. The idea is to increase the visibility of the many ways in which women and men who are parents, carers and scientists have grown their careers in research whilst nurturing family life. The campaign aims to show early career and future scientists that they don’t have to choose between research and their aspirations and commitments outside the lab. Their stories also highlight the vital role that a supportive employer and family friendly policies and funding play in enabling researchers to combine a vocation for science with family life.
