In a new audio article by Deutschlandfunk, Emeritus Scholar Annette Vogt talks to Ursula Storost on the now forgotten pioneer of brain research Cécile Vogt, who was once so influential that she accumulated thirteen nominations for the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine—although she was never awarded it. Annette Vogt provides insight into the mistreatment of women in academia in the early 20th century and how this shaped Cécile Vogt's career.
