Expanding Women's Health and Sex Differences Research
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.
It’s not Mental Health, It’s Health will tackle the topics of adolescent mental health, the impact of childhood adversity on cognition at peri and post-menopause, and racial and ethnic disparities in women’s mental health.
Applications are now open for Early-Career Faculty Development Awards (seed grants). Eligibility spans the full spectrum of research (e.g. basic, clinical, translational, population science, implementation and big data). Interdisciplinary approaches, innovative ideas and use of technologically advanced methodological approaches are encouraged. Topics must focus on women’s health or sex and gender differences.
Grants of $25,000 and $50,000.
Applications due June 9, 2023 by 5pm MT.
Dr. Judy Regensteiner and Dr. Jane Reusch just published an article calling for sex-specific guidelines for treating obesity, hypertension and diabetes in women. Take a look at this new research!
We are finding answers that save lives through research focused on women's health and sex and gender differences.
Through seed grants and our renowned mentoring, we support scientists who study women’s health and sex and gender differences.
From around the world to our backyard, we share groundbreaking research, innovative studies, important health tips and stories of how research is improving lives.
Join us to play an important role in health issues that matter most to you – learn, share, participate, support.
