Our goal to promote dialogue between active and prominent biomedical scientists around the world is achieved through key programs that include the unique Vallee Visiting Professorships, which provide one-month sabbaticals for senior scientists at any laboratory of their choosing; the Vallee Scholar Awards, which provide unrestricted funding to junior faculty; the Kuggie Vallee Distinguished Lectures, designed to encourage women in science; and the symposia and meetings which enable members of the Vallee community to share their research in a relaxed and fun environment. The Vallee Foundation is mindful of the lack of diversity within the scientific research community as a whole and is committed to furthering the careers of historically under-represented minorities.
