Salk Women & Science Program Leading Through the Pandemic and Beyond

During a special Women & Science event on July 14, a panel of speakers discussed the unique challenges faced by women leaders in science and industry during the COVID pandemic, new research opportunities and lessons learned, the importance of supporting women leaders, and the future of the Salk Institute. The event opened with remarks by Director of Donor Relations Betsy Collins and President Rusty Gage. Senior Vice President and Chief Science Officer Gerald Joyce moderated the panel, which featured Board Chair Marna Whittington, Trustee Carol Gallagher and Professor Kay Tye. The event was dedicated to the late Professor Emerita Ursula Bellugi and her pioneering roles in science, at Salk and in the Institute’s Women & Science program.
