Irritated AAMRI

The Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes says CMM was unfair in reporting that only six of its members are participating in the Science in Australia Gender Equity pilot. Although six are named on the SAGE site, another seven, the association states, are “participating through a university” and around one-third of research institutes’ staff work at participating institutions. Just because a medical research institute is not participating in SAGE does not mean gender equity issues are unaddressed, the association asserts.
