The Rockefeller University’s Women & Science Initiative was established in 1998 to:
- Highlight the crucial role of basic research in addressing scientific challenges related to women’s health
- Showcase the contributions of women scientists
- Create a program of support for women scientists
- Encourage more women to embrace scientific research as a focus of their philanthropy
Through the Partners in Discovery fundraising program, Women & Science has raised over $27 million for talented women pursuing careers in the sciences at The Rockefeller University.
