Structural Measures

Many talented and well-educated young women leave the academic career pathway after their PhD or their PostDoc time for various reasons. This so-called leaky pipeline leads to a management level still dominated by men. TransCure therefore aims to reach equality within all academic and organizational levels.


…actively recruit female scientists for open positions

…have a balanced selection procedure for open professorships

…increased the number of female PIs within the TransCure network

…increased the number of women in the NCCR TransCure Management Committee from 12% to 22% during Phase 3

…regularly monitor our statistics and adapt our measures where needed

…equality of male and female speakers in NCCR TransCure Lectures or symposia
