The spring Women & Science event on March 13 celebrated the generosity of two Salk professors emeritae, Suzanne Bourgeois and Ursula Bellugi. Bourgeois established the Suzanne Bourgeois Women & Science Fund to advance the work of female Salk faculty while the Salk Trailblazer award was renamed in honor of Bellugi, who established an endowed fund to support those who have pioneered changes within the STEAM fields. At the event, Salk Professor Tatyana Sharpee gave a talk and fifteen scientists were awarded travel or professional development grants, while seven received Women & Science Special Awards.
