Welcome to Beyond Curie!

A newsletter of notable women, nonbinary, and trans people in the history of science and medicine, written by author Olivia Campbell.

Each newsletter will highlight a different person whose impact on science should be much more widely recognized.

Occasionally, instead of a short biography of one person, I will discuss a particular issue relevant to women in science, touch on a specific era, or look at the impact of multiple women on a particular discipline. Enjoy!
