Associate Professor Lisa Moran has been awarded a veski inspiring women bridging the funding gap grant to support her Healthy Lifestyle and Risk Prediction research.
Bronwyn Halfpenny MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Jobs presented the award to A/Prof Moran at the veski inspiring women event on 11 May.
“I am honoured to be awarded a Veski Bridging the Gap fellowship, and congratulations to my fellow awardees. It was wonderful to meet all recipients and hear about their amazing research,” said A/Prof Moran.
High calibre researchers continue to face challenges in obtaining funding to support their ongoing research.
The grants support equity in research and raise the representation of women in STEM. They support women in STEM who face barriers at a critical point in their career and enable them to continue their research.
“Thank you to Veski for this important grant program, it’s crucial to support women from varied backgrounds who may have experienced challenges in career progression and I feel very fortunate that I’ve received this award to support my career. I’m looking forward to continuing my work in optimising lifestyle and cardiometabolic screening in women with pregnancy complications.
The veski bridging gap grants are funded by the Victorian State Government.
