L’Oréal USA Honors Women in Science

December 3, 2013

L’Oréal USA has named and honored the recipients of the 2013 L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women in Science. Celebrating its 10th year, the program is a national initiative that recognizes and rewards five outstanding US-based post-doctoral women researchers.  

This year’s awards ceremony was held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The evening’s program welcomed honorary guests and keynote speaker, FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who addressed and awarded this year’s winners.   

This year’s awards recognized and supported the following post-doctoral female scientists for their pivotal scientific research: Arpita Bose, Harvard University, microbiologist; Luisa Whittaker-Brooks, Princeton University, chemical and biological engineering; Anisa Salim Ismail, Princeton University, molecular biology; Robin Evans Stanley, National Institutes of Health, biochemistry; Mary Caswell Stoddard, Harvard University, evolutionary biologist and ornithologist.  

Each honoree received up to $60,000 to support her post-doctoral research. In addition to awarding the grants, the program also offered the Fellows professional development workshops facilitated by the program’s partner, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and helped them build networks with accomplished female leaders in corporate, academic, government, and scientific fields.   

L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science is a national extension of the global L’Oréal – UNESCO For Women in Science program, which, since 1998, has honored 77 Laureates, including two who subsequently were awarded the Nobel Prize. The program has also supported more than 1,652 international Fellows who have made contributions in every field of scientific research. By the end of 2013, a total of 1,729 women scientists from more than 100 countries will have benefitted from the program.
