An Honor for Claire Fraser-Liggett

Claire Fraser-Liggett is to be inducted into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame this evening along with five other women who have made contributions to the economics, politics, culture, or society of Maryland. "I am truly humbled to be part of this most prestigious tradition. Scientists often focus on the global impacts of our research, but to be successful, we need to be working in an environment that nurtures our work," she says in a statement. "I am very fortunate that our Institute is part of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, a place that encourages innovative thinking and fosters women's leadership." The other inductees include civil rights activist Irene Morgan Kirkaldy and Title IX champion Bernice Sandler.
