In celebration of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day the Smithsonian Institution Archives is highlighting women in science photographs. Included in the display is Tulane's pioneering biochemist Willey Glover Denis (1879-1929). Dr. Denis studied at Sophie Newcomb College (Tulane University), and received a Ph.D. from University of Chicago in 1907; after research which included a productive scientific collaboration with Ann Stone Minot (1894-1980), Denis returned to her hometown as a professor at Tulane University in 1920. She was named the first chair of the Tulane Department of Biochemistry (now the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology). To see more, click here.
