L’Oréal USA has announced the recipients of its 2018 For Women in Science fellowship, a program that sees five female post doc scientists receive a grant of US$60,000 each to advance their research.
This year, the French beauty giant is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the program, which has recognized 75 postdoctoral female scientists with a total pot of US$3.8 million since 2003.
This year’s cohort hail from a wide range of fields from mechanical engineering to neuroscience and include Amber Alhadeff, Stacy Copp, Brecca Gaffney, Fan Liu and Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert.
“I am inspired by the work this year’s For Women in Science fellows are doing, both in the lab and in their communities as role models for the next generation of women in STEM,” said Federic Roze, President & CEO of L’Oréal USA. “At L’Oréal, beauty is based in science, which is central to our belief that science makes progress possible. On the fifteenth anniversary of the For Women in Science program, we proudly celebrate the ground-breaking scientific contributions of these female leaders.”
