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 fund-raising program, Women & Science has raised over $21 million for talented women pursuing careers in the sciences at The Rockefeller University.
