It's an award honoring some of the top women in our community. The 28th annual Athena Awards luncheon was held Thursday. 

Taking home this year's top honor was Lynne Elizabeth Maquet. She serves as the Director for RNA Biology at the University of Rochester's School of Medicine. The Rochester Business Alliance's Women Council chose Maquet from 13 finalists because of her professional achievements.

URMC's CEO says Dr. Maquet is especially committed to helping other women to advance in the science field.
