WHRY aims to improve the health of all individuals through scientific knowledge by initiating and supporting research focusing on women's health and on gender differences in health and disease.
Advancing Health Equity for Women
Sex and gender are among the most important variables in understanding health but, until recent decades, women were underrepresented in clinical research. Our center is helping to close the knowledge gap created by this historical non-inclusion of women. Our studies focus on health concerns specific to or more prevalent in women, and the many conditions in which there are gender differences. Through our strategic initiatives, our center funds pilot studies, develops our own collaborative research projects, trains the next generation of women researchers, and provides educational outreach to the community.
