Congratulations to Prof. Susan M. Gasser, scientific director of the ISREC Foundation, who was awarded an honorary doctorate title by the University of Fribourg during the Dies academicus 2021.
The Faculty of Science and Medicine of the University of Fribourg hereby honors this internationally renowned professor and epigeneticist for the excellence of her research and her unflagging leadership of the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research in Basel. This recognition also underlines her commitment to the promotion of women in science in Switzerland. Susan M. Gasser has been awarded numerous important distinctions, such as the Latsis Prize, the Otto Naegeli Prize and the INSERM International Prize. She is a pioneer in the promotion of women in science: in her former function as the president of the Swiss national Science Foundation’s Gender Committee, for example, she initiated the PRIMA program for the promotion of exceptional women in science, which allows young women to reconcile family and a scientific career.
The ISREC Foundation is proud to be able to count on Prof. Gasser’s scientific expertise.
