Our commitment to seeding ideas and growing the careers of researchers leads to life-changing discoveries, expand the field and speeds progress on closing the gap in women’s health research.
Our approach of providing both funding and dedicated mentoring by senior researchers has resulted in nearly all of the Ludeman Center’s MD and PhD scientists continuing to research sex and gender differences following completion of their initial research projects, with many also moving on to become mentors.
Our grants help scientists test, refine and expand ideas. In many cases, it is a researcher's first time embarking on sex or gender differences' research. The data obtained enable them to secure larger funding from the National Institutes of Health and other external funding agencies. For every dollar we award to scientists, an additional $55 has been obtained by our researchers to pursue their ideas in women’s health and sex and gender research on a larger scale.
