Over the course of history, women have lacked proper recognition and acknowledgement for their contributions in STEM fields. We want to change that narrative. We want generations now and generations to come to learn the names and stories of influential women in STEM. To start us off, we're highlighting five trailblazing women in vaccine development that you should know about.
