  • Foster an inclusive and diverse MICCAI research community.

WiM 2019 Board Members:

Keynote Talk Title: ‘Being an Opportunist’
Dr. Catherine Mohr, the vice president of Strategy at Intuitive Surgical and president of the Intuitive Foundation, will address the somewhat odd and twisting path she has taken through her career and the common theme of having a plan, but being willing to change it when something better comes along.

Keynote Talk Title: ‘Diapers and Dual Career’
Dr. Lena Maier-Hein is the head of the division of Computer Assisted Medical Interventions, and Dr. Klaus Maier-Hein is the head of the division of Medical Image Computing at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Germany. The couple, both leading scientists in their field, will talk about family and research, and how to keep a balance between the two.”
