In honor of Women's History Month, The NICHD Connection would like to take a moment to highlight women inventors, innovators, and scientists. In this issue, you will find a recap of a wonderful lecture by Patricia Edwards from the National Museum of American History discussing some of the creative minds—all women—of the past. Silviya Zustiak brings the message a little closer to home in her article about juggling the many jobs of a mother with the intense workload of a postdoc. As women continue to make leaps and bounds in the scientific community, the history we create today will surely be an inspiration for the young scientists of tomorrow.
