From Ingrid Scheffer’s work on the the genetics of epilesy, which is bringing hope to families, to Angela Moles re-defining the field of ecology – many of Australia’s most innovative women have taken home a Prime Minister’s Prize for Science.
Each year L’Oréal Australia also awards three of Australia’s best and brightest early career women in science, with their $25,000 Fellowships. Over the past decade close to 30 astronomers, geneticists, biologists, and mathematicians have been awarded these fellowships and last year New Zealand awarded their first fellow.
Four Australian and NZ female science leaders (and two expats) have also been awarded L’Oréal’s Women in Science Laureates.
