About Us


Mums in Science was established in 2005 to support parents who work,  have worked or want to work in any aspect of science.

Too many women leave science due to the constraints of motherhood. Some struggle, and work part time, at the expense of advancing their career. Others change their career to fit in with their children, whilst working within some area of science.

Our aims are :-

to create a community to provide mutual support,
to provide information to those who have the challenge of bringing up children and maintaining a career in science, whether full or part time, or outside mainstream science.
