Women in Science at the NIH

Women in Science at the National Institutes of Health, 2007-2008, features a wide range of the roles, positions, and contributions of doctoral-level women across the NIH, including but not limited to, clinicians, basic scientists, program directors, policy analysts, computer scientists, epidemiologists, geneticists, statisticians, and women in leadership positions. The women who are profiled shared not only their fascinating biographical information and research interests, but thought-provoking descriptions of experiences that shaped their careers, insight on how they manage work/life balance, as well as their thoughts on the importance of mentoring — both being mentored and mentoring others.

This publication, which is not a directory of all doctoral-level women at the NIH, but rather a snap shot in time of just a few of the highly accomplished women at the NIH, was sponsored and prepared by the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) in collaboration with the NIH Coordinating Committee on Research on Women’s Health (CCRWH), the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs), and OD Offices. Through the examples and role models included in this book, we hope to inspire a diversity of girls and boys, and women and men, to consider or continue in careers in science.
