Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH)


The Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) program is a mentored junior faculty development program for scientists and scientist physicians who wish to build a career in women’s health research or sex difference research.  This program is supported by the Office of Research on Women’s Health of the National Institutes of Health.  The junior faculty submit an application, and the BIRCWH scholars are chosen by a committee. The BIRCWH program connects these BIRCWH Scholars to senior faculty with shared research interests.  Dr. Judy Regensteiner, Director of the Center for Women’s Health Research, is Principal Investigator for the BIRCWH program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. This highly competitive $2.5 million 5-year grant provides 2-3 years of funding for up to 8 early career researchers who are dedicated to women’s health or sex differences research. The University of Colorado School of Medicine is one of 28 BIRCWH sites in the country.
