Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH)
In the Lab
Some scientists are already addressing the influence of sex in biomedical research. What can we learn from their work in the lab? In the coming months, NIH’s Office of Research on Womenís Health (ORWH) will share their stories. You can hear about the research that ORWH and its partnering NIH Institutes and Centers have supported. Also learn about ORWH’s interdisciplinary Specialized Centers of Research on Sex Differences (SCOR) program, which focuses on the influence of sex in major medical conditions affecting women.
