The JCSMR Gender Equity Fund

Priority area: Transforming our world
The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) is committed to promoting Gender Equity in Science, and is aware of the problems faced in retaining and promoting female staff.

Through the support of the JCSMR Gender Equity Committee, the School has established The JCSMR Gender Equity Fund to support women in science. 

The objective of this Fund is to provide funding for an early or mid-career researcher or domestic/international PhD student who is experiencing significant career disruption resulting from the birth of a child, or the primary care of a child, which limits or prevents their career progression and research activities in the John Curtin School of Medical Research. 

Funding has been provided by a generous initial donation by Professor Carola Vinuesa and continues with the support of Richard Miller and the School, as funding permits. 

The JCSMR welcomes further donations to build and continue this important prize to support women in science.
