Society for Women’s Health Research Medtronic Prize for Scientific Contributions to Women’s Health

Society for Women's Health Research Medtronic Prize for Scientific Contributions to Women's Health
The Society for Women's Health Research and the Medtronic Foundation
have established an annual prize of $75,000 to recognize a woman
scientist or engineer for her contributions to women's health.

The prize encourages women scientists and engineers to work on issues
uniquely related to women's health and rewards women who have devoted a
significant part of their careers to this area. The prize honors
commitment to the area of sex differences and work to pass this
commitment to collaborators and students as both a role model and
mentor. The prize is given to an outstanding scientist or engineer in
mid-career whose work has led or will lead directly to the improvement
of women's health.
