Women In Science


CCR is committed to creating a work culture that supports the needs and concerns of women scientists, on issues such as equal pay, career development, workplace flexibility and a strong commitment to combat harassment in its many forms.

CCR's elected Women Scientist Advisors (WSA) support and promote career development for our women scientists, represent their concerns to CCR leadership and sponsor workshops and visits by distinguished female scientists.

The NCI Sallie Rosen Kaplan (SRK) Postdoctoral Fellowship for Women Scientists provides additional opportunities to help prepare NCI's female postdoctoral fellows to transition to independent research careers.

CCR staff also benefit from a wide array of NIH benefits and work-life initiatives including nursing mothers program, child and family programs, and workplace flexibilities, such as telework and alternative work schedules.


The Center for Cancer Research is proud to have world-renowned scientists as current faculty including members of the National Academy of Science, the National Academy of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and awardees of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
