Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPHIL, was the first recipient of the Joan F. Giambalvo Fund for the Advancement of Women. Dr. Jagsi was the primary author of the article “The ‘Gender Gap’ in Academic Medical Literature—a 35-year perspective,” which found that while the proportion of women among both first and senior physician-authors of original research in the United States had increased, women still composed a minority of the authors of original research and guest editorials in the journals. Dr. Jagsi received Giambalvo funding to research the gender gap in the attainment of independent funding for research.
