A Spotlight on Autoimmunity

Welcome to the Sex-Inclusion Toolbox 

In January of 2016, the NIH established a policy which requires the consideration of sex as a biological variable in biomedical and preclinical research. This policy marks a fundamental shift in the way researchers must evaluate sex in their experimental design. The WHRI established the Sex-Inclusion Toolbox to support and engage investigators who are currently, or interested in, conducting sex-inclusive research.

Learn how sex-inclusive research drives new discovery and improves the health and well-being of all from WHRI Director, Dr. Teresa Woodruff. 

Funding Announcement: Shaw Family Pioneer Awards
Deadline: December 12th, 2017 

The Women’s Health Research Institute is currently accepting proposals for the Shaw Family Pioneer Awards. Two awards of $12,000 in direct costs will be granted to research or tenure-line faculty members. Proposals must be directly relevant to sex-inclusive research, focusing on sex-based determinants of health and disease. These awards are not designed to provide ongoing support for a long-term project, rather they are intended to assist in obtaining pilot data required for larger grant applications.
