"Women scientists are making amazing progress, forging ahead and overcoming obstacles as they dispel the gender stereotype that women are not equipped to excel in the sciences," said Laurent Attal. "L'Oreal USA is proud to help foster and recognize the success of women scientists at all levels. We believe the world needs science, and science needs women."
The 2008 L'Oreal USA Fellows are:

-- Dr. Sara Aton -- University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

-- neuroscientist, researching how the sleeping brain consolidates

learning and memory. Dr. Aton studies a key component in learning and

memory: synaptic plasticity, which is the ability of a connection, or

synapse, between two neurons to change in strength. She is performing

the first study attempting such a large-scale recording of neurons

within a synaptically-integrated network during plastic remodeling. Her

findings will be a foundation for further research into understanding

human development and how sleep affects cognition.

-- Dr. Ania Bleszynski-Jayich -- Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut

-- physicist, investigating the persistent current principle of quantum

mechanics which, though predicted years ago in theory, has been

challenging for scientists to test. Dr. Bleszynski-Jayich has developed

an approach using new techniques: creating the extreme conditions

necessary to accurately test the persistent current. She will conduct

experiments testing the persistent current in normal rings using

sensitive cantilevers for detection. The cantilevers sense the magnetic

moment produced by the current, and Dr. Bleszynski-Jayich will both

work to improve the sensitivity of the cantilever-based detector, and

use it to perform systematic measurements of the persistent current.
