Seed Grants

The Center for Women's Health Research has funded 65 MD and PhD faculty researchers who study women's health and sex/gender differences across the lifespan.  We seek to benefit women's health by adding a well-trained, diverse group of researchers to the workforce who are equipped to answer key questions about women's health and sex/gender differences through interdisciplinary research.​

We aim to broaden the research agenda in women's health and sex/gender differences, particularly in cardiovascular disease and diabetes — two of the leading causes of disability and death in women.  These diseases are also tied to struggles with depression and anxiety and some past researchers have looked at the intersection of mental and physical health.
