The Ludeman Family Center for Women’s Health Research is regarded as one of the best places to conduct research that includes women and considers the distinct but linked concepts of sex (biological) and gender (social) differences.
We mentor and fund the next generation of researchers, supporting their cutting-edge research on issues that pose a significant threat to women’s health – cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the intersection of mental health and physical health in those diseases. Join us in supporting new, life-saving discoveries and in learning more about women’s health across the lifespan.

There are urgent gaps to address in order to advance the health of women: improving our understanding of women’s specific conditions like PCOS and endometriosis, accounting for sex differences in disease presentation and treatment response, and mitigating gender disparities in access to care and care delivery. In some instances, there is a dearth of data necessary to support research in these areas, while in others, large datasets exist but are complex, noisy, and potentially biased. In this talk Dr. Noemie Elhadad argues that Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially when developed in a human-centered fashion, can tackle these challenges, generate new knowledge, and support the care of women.
