Mildred Dresselhaus / Spiders

Dresselhaus, who won countless prestigious positions and honors in science. In 1960, when she arrived at MIT as a young researcher, only four percent of students were women. Today, almost 50 percent are women -- in part due to Dresselhaus' efforts. Her research centers on electronic materials, particularly in nanoscience and nanotechnology, with special regard to carbon related materials. She is especially known for her work in the field of carbon nanotubes. We'll hear about her achievements in physics and her work on behalf of women in science.
