Female scientists are under-represented in global research. There is a need for initiatives to increase their opportunities and participation and SBI is delighted to announce an award programmed to this end. The SBI Women in Science Award highlights major contributions by Brazilian female scientists to research in immunology. SBI recognizes that a huge amount must be done to overcome the many barriers that women face to entry and progress in research; this award is just one small contribution. We look forward to identifying outstanding individuals who are deserving of this award, celebrating their achievements and sharing their stories. Starting in 2019, each year the achievements of one woman working in immunology will be rewarded.

Candidates must be Brazilian, female or self-identify as female, we welcome trans women, genderqueer individuals, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified. Applicants must hold a PhD and have a permanent position in a Superior Education Institution, Research Institution or Industry, who have made significant contributions to research in immunology and advanced our understanding of a particular discipline over the years. Besides scientific discovery, as reflected in publications, poster and conference presentations, nominees should also have a solid track regarding leadership, tutoring and mentoring. The award is not meant to be for lifetime achievements. The awardee will be elected by a search committee assigned by the SBI board of Directors and the will be announced in October, at the annual SBI meeting.
