About Us

The Women in Science website is one of the many achievements of the NIH Working Group on Women in Biomedical Careers (WgWBC), an effort co-chaired by the NIH Director and Director of the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH). 

Celebrating the successes of women in science can serve as an inspiration to both women and men. The profiles featured on this website highlight the important contributions of women to research, valuable lessons, and advice from women in science as well as advocates. You will also find information, tools, and resources that support and promote the entry, recruitment, retention, and sustained advancement of women in biomedical research careers.
