Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions of students and academic staff regarding key historical female researchers in physiology using infographic posters. This study has shown that universities may have to do more to raise the profile of the contributions of female medical scientists, but that exhibits such as this may be an effective method of engaging a broad audience with such topics, as well as improving how we teach the history of physiology. Future exhibits will take place in more accessible areas of university campus to increase the visibility of women in science.
