|Women's Health Research at Yale, founded in 1998, is an interdisciplinary research program studying women's health and gender differences in health. Sex and gender are among the most important variables in understanding biology and behavior, yet women were generally not included in clinical research trials until recent years. |
Women's Health Research at Yale was created in response to the dramatic need for scientific knowledge on women's health. The program is dedicated to exploring the wide range of conditions that are more prevalent in women or for which the causes, treatment and prevention have gender specific differences. It is has grown to become a national model for fostering interdisciplinary research on women's health and translating findings for real-world benefits.
