Women Faculty Organization Promotes Women in Medicine, Science

The Northwestern Medical Women Faculty Organization sponsored its 2002 Distinguished Women in Medicine and Science lecture on April 5. Christina Enroth-Cugell, MD, PhD, Northwestern professor emeritus of biomedical engineering and of neurobiology and physiology, spoke on “What Old Folks See in a Young Person’s World.” Pioneering research on the visual pathways of the retina, Dr. Enroth-Cugell is widely known for her work on visual adaptation and a classic series of experiments in which she and collaborator John Robson established for the first time the existence of two separate kinds of functionally different cells in the retina—the X and Y cells.
