Closing the gender gap in medical research

​Women and men are not equals when it comes to inclusion in medical research, from basic cell models to human clinical trials. Women have often not been included in numbers necessary to show how they differ from men in order to optimize the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, as well as other diseases.
The Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has worked to change that paradigm through its support of research and community education since 2004, and recently hosted its inaugural National Conference on Women’s Health and Sex Differences Research.
