The goal of the WHINS program is to support early-career scientists at the Ludeman Family Center for Women’s Health Research at University of Colorado who aim to impact patient care by accelerating women’s health or sex/gender differences research in the focus areas of cardiovascular disease, diabetes/metabolism and/or the intersection of mental and physical health. This program provides grant support, mentoring and training for early-career scientists pursuing a career in women’s health or sex/gender differences research. 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. Two WHINS positions may be awarded in this cycle.
