This project aims to make visible and pay tribute to scientists of national and international reference.

Doctor in Chemical Sciences from the University of Valencia (1979), Elvira Costell was a CSIC Research Professor working at IATA, where she directed the group of Physical and Sensory Properties of Food until 2013. Elvira points out that for her "to be part of 'Dones de Ciència' is an honor because the project collects and makes visible the role of different women in different areas of science and technology and does so through a network of magnificent urban murals, also made by women, that covers and adorns Valencia and your metropolitan area "
