Natalie V. Zucker Grant and Research Center for Women Scholars

Dr. Natalie V. Zucker generously set up a Foundation to support academic research by women at National Jewish Health. The intent is to further the research careers of women basic and clinical scientists whose work occurs primarily at National Jewish Health. Faculty and postdoctoral fellows are eligible.  

"For me this is a wonderful way to help women doing such fantastic research," said Zucker. "The goal is to advance women researchers at every level."
