Women's Health Innovation Scholar (WHINS)

Women's Health Innovation Scholar Program

The goal of the WHINS program is to support early-career scientists at the University of Colorado School of Medicine who aim to impact patient care by accelerating women’s health or sex and gender differences research. These areas of research include cardiovascular disease, diabetes/metabolism and/or the intersection of mental and physical health. The WHINS program provides grant support, mentoring, and training opportunities designed to advance early researchers' careers. 

For this award mechanism, a mentor and a career development plan are required. Priorities will include, but will not be limited to, proposals that illustrate a pathway for translation to patient care. WHINS program includes up to $100,000 of salary support (plus benefits) guaranteed for two years, with a 3rd being negotiable, plus $35,000 in annual project support funds.

The next funding cycle will begin in Fall 2024
