The Society of General Physiologists names a new award for UW Neuroscience faculty Sharona Gordon

This new award by the Society of General Physiologists is to recognize the contributions Sharona has made “in changing the scientific environment, including establishing standards of equity in the peer review process during her time as editor-in-chief of the Journal of General Physiology”. Sharona has worked tirelessly to develop more equitable opportunities for all people. She has also developed mentorship opportunities to early-career scientists with a focus on dealing with harassment in academia.

The new Sharona Gordon Award will be given annually to recognize an individual showing “extraordinary commitment to promoting equity and inclusivity in the physiology and biophysics community”.
