Thursday 8 March marks International Women's Day, a global commitment to honouring the cultural, social, economic, political and academic contributions of women. The Oxford Science Blog will start the celebrations by shining a light on the incredible women of Oxford and some of their achievements.

Their first interview is with Layal Liverpool, a DPhil student investigating virus-host interactions at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (based in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine). In addition to her studies, Layal is a committed science communicator and STEM ambassador. She shares her experience as a young woman of colour navigating the world of academic science.
