WNET New York: PBS’ Favorite Unsung Heroines

“Mary Woolley, President of Research!America, has been an advocate for medical and health research for more than 30 years. She has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the vital role that research plays, and to make the case – through her writing, lobbying and public speaking — for more funding for life-saving and life-lengthening medical research across a broad spectrum.”
