From excavating in the Nile River Valley to establishing a life sciences company in West Lafayette, Purdue women researchers are striving to make the world a better place. Once again, in conjunction with Women's History Month, 31 Purdue women researchers both past and present are being featured this month on Research at Purdue, the Office of Research and Partnerships' official social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus.

"We had such a great response to last year's promotion, with a lot of engagement from Purdue colleges, departments and several of the researchers themselves," says Angie Roberts, writer/graphic designer who oversees social media in the Office of Research Communications. "This year, we expect even more engagement since we have significantly more followers, especially on Twitter."

The posts, which will be noted with the hashtag #31PurdueWomen, appear each morning at 7 a.m. "Some of the women are well-known, while are others are sort of unsung heroines outside of their fields," Roberts says. "We encourage our followers to share and retweet so that we can together promote the great work that women researchers at Purdue are doing."
