Fellowship schemes at the RMH
The RMH Margaret Henderson Women in Research Fellowship and The RMH Fight Cancer Foundation Fay Duncan Women in Research Fellowship
While the benefits of research have accrued to all people, the opportunity to do research has been limited for women and yet female clinicians are highly represented in the healthcare workforce.
To address the gender balance in research, we launched the RMH Margaret Henderson Women in Research Fellowship program to create opportunities for young female scientists and clinicians to undertake research as part of their careers. The $50,000 prize will enable the recipient to carry out further research in their area of expertise.
The RMH Fight Cancer Foundation Fay Duncan Women in Research Fellowship supports applications in the area of cancer research.
