Congrats also to the women of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, who received more than $300,000 in awards during the seventh-annual Advancing Women in Science and Medicine luncheon, held last week in New York City.

Eighteen total awards were presented at the annual event, which celebrates the achievements of female researchers at Northwell Health’s R&D mecca (and seeks to promote new ones). Since its inception in 2011, AWSM – and yeah, that “awesome” acronym is intentional – has raised and distributed more than $1 million in support of Feinstein’s female scientists.
