The director of the Observatory of Pain, Inmaculada Failde, has been recognized for her dedication and contribution to scientific research at the ‘Pioneras en la UCA’ event, an event that aims to appreciate and value the role of women in science.
She has shared this recognition with another 60 professors who have also been honored in an act presided over by the rector of the University of Cádiz, Francisco Piniella.
The ceremony, organized by the Vice Chancellorship of Scientific and Technological Policy, was held last wednesday, May 18, in the Constitución 1812 building and was also attended by the territorial delegate for Equality, Social Policies and Conciliation of the Junta de Andalucía , Ana Fidalgo, the vice-dean for Scientific and Technological Policy of the UCA, Mª Jesús Mosquera, the provincial deputy for Equality, Carmen Collado and the assistant of the IAM program in Cádiz, Celia Mañueco.
Hosted by the journalist Pepa Pacheco, the event took place in a relaxed and pleasant manner.
During its course, videos with presentations were viewed, the distinctions were given to a representation of the award-winning professors and interviews were conducted with four of the honorees: Mª Sol Carrasco (first professor of the UCA in 1984, from the Surgery area), Sara Acuña (first professor of State Ecclesiastical Law in Spain), Lola Bermúdez (French Philology) and Mª Carmen Puerta (Inorganic Chemistry).
In addition, the act was livened up by musical performances by the artist Verónica Díaz, the perfect finishing touch for an afternoon where the combination of women and science shined brighter than ever.
