Congratulations to Professor Yi Xie for being honoured the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award!

“As the International Year of Light celebrates science and knowledge all over the world, the L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO will present, on March 18th, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards to five outstanding women scientists and 15 grants to promising young researchers. Each of these women is a brilliant example of scientific excellence. They prove everyday that women can greatly contribute to scientific progress in a field still largely dominated by men.”

This year’s 5 Laureates of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards are being honored for their ground-breaking discoveries in the physical sciences. By studying the infinitely large to the infinitely small, they have pushed back the frontiers of knowledge to explain the most fundamental questions of the universe and contribute to solving some of today’s greatest challenges. Passionate in life as much as in their work, they are also committed to giving back to their communities and transmitting their love of science.

    UNESCO give honor the 5 person who try hard and get a little prize for their great job . … . . .if u want to know more about this u can visit here

  2. Inorganic chemistry help services are definitely many online, but these services are failing to give right competition to our team. Our team is well qualified and acquired extensive experience in teaching inorganic chemistry and this kind of caliber is making them as the right choice for solving the students’ inorganic chemistry problems. We are always available online to provide good help on your inorganic chemistry assignment and inorganic chemistry homework. Here, or team services for this purpose are available at the most competitive price too.

  3. Thank you, I was curious to know that.UNESCO give honor the 6 person who try hard and get a little prize for their great job . … . . .if u want to know more about this u can visit here:

  4. Inorganic chemistry help online is relieving the maximum burden from the students’ head through solving their inorganic chemistry problems quickly and effectively. Here, these service providers’ help and support in completing the students’ inorganic chemistry homework and inorganic chemistry assignment is most worthwhile and deserves special recognition too.
