Maclean's Magazine
In the Dec 7, 2017 issue of Maclean's, Dr. Deepa Kundur highlights many examples of how female engineers have paved the way in making significant advances in engineering, and to change the gender gap. Included in Dr. Kundur's examples is Dr. Molly Shoichet who has recently been appointed Ontario's first Chief Scientist.

Solar Eclipse
On Monday August 21, 2017, much of North America could witness the partial solar eclipse. It began just after 1:00pm. By about 2:30pm, we could witness about two-thirds of the sun covered up. The Shoichet group joined many other labs around King's College Circle, University of Toronto, to view the eclipse. Special thanks to Mike Cooke for the collage of eclipse that he made. The next total solar eclipse won't be until 2024.

The Times of Israel
Molly Shoichet sits down with Dana Wachter, where she talks about how her passion in science and her love of asking questions, has helped to fuel her career and her success. Her drive to succeed was further enhanced through the encouragement and support from her family, teachers, mentors and role models. She brings this similar strength in her students, and at the same time, to also encourage their creativity. Together, in her lab, researchers work to reverse degenerative disease - and gender discrimination.
