“STEM work is often culturally less tolerant and supportive of caregiving responsibilities than other occupations,” Cech says. “So mothers — and fathers — may feel squeezed out of STEM work and pulled into full-time work in non-STEM fields”.
This week in #bioengineering, we share exciting developments in microfluidics, cancer research, a Penn hackathon, and more.

A few months ago, I shared a #DayOfScience. Now I’m going to share something else important in my life a #WeekendOfSkiTouring that I just finished with Dan, Clemens, @mluerig and memories of A. Not in real time, cause I didn’t have service for most of it
Today was really unproductive. I couldn’t write or read anything related to the PhD. My mind needed a break. So instead of forcing myself to work, I lollygagged and spoke to some friends then left early to enjoy the sun. We all need days like these. #PhDChat
