The School of Biochemistry professor is recognised in the BristolLive list.

To mark International Women's Day, the BristolLive website has put together a list of the most influential women in Bristol.

Professor of Biochemistry, Christiane Berger-Schaffitzel, has been listed as one of the women who has contributed to life in the city in the past 12 months thanks to her lab's Covid-19 research. Professor Berger-Schaffitzel's team made the ground-breaking discovery of a druggable pocket in the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein that could be used to stop the virus.

The aim of the list is to celebrate a wide range of women involved in a variety of sectors, showcasing the city's diversity.

Some of the other women featured include lawyer and campaigner for young black professionals and equality, Marti Burgess; disability ambassador and Great British Bake Off semi-finalist, Bryony May Williams; and MP for Bristol West, Thangham Debbonaire.

Congratulations Christiane!
