Douglas Flora: A nice morning kick-off for this year’s American Cancer Society’s ResearcHERS campaign

Douglas Flora shared on LinkedIn:

“A nice morning kick-off for this year’s American Cancer Society‘s ResearcHERS campaign. Loved hearing the insights of dual MD/PhD stars Trisha Wise-Draper and Maria Czyzyk-Krzeska, both brilliant and inspiring cancer researchers who are helping support new generations of strong women in STEM.

ResearcHERS empowers women to fundraise in support of women-led cancer research, but it’s more than just a fundraising campaign. ResearcHERS is a movement. A sisterhood of purpose determined to sustain women-led cancer research, supporting the next generation of young women in STEM.

The American Cancer Society has funded 50 researchers who have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize, and in 2022, Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi became the first woman ACS has funded to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Join the ResearcHERS movement and help us fuel the future of women-led cancer research.”
