ORWH e-learning courses give users a thorough and up-to-date understanding of sex and gender influences on health and disease and NIH requirements on factoring sex as a biological variable into research designs. Users will be able to apply this knowledge when designing and conducting research or interpreting evidence for clinical practice. Course material showcases examples from basic science through clinical trials and translation into practice to ensure participants understand the importance of considering the influence of sex and gender throughout the research spectrum and beyond. Courses include Bench to Bedside: Integrating Sex and Gender to Improve Human Health and Sex as a Biological Variable: A Primer [coming soon].

The courses are open to the public, and registration is free.

Bench to Bedside

Bench to Bedside: Integrating Sex and Gender to Improve Human Health was developed in partnership with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Women’s Health (OWH). This online course gives users a thorough and up-to-date understanding of sex and gender influences on health and disease so users can apply this knowledge when conducting research and interpreting evidence for clinical practice. Course material showcases examples from basic science through clinical trials and translation into practice to ensure participants understand the importance of considering the influence of sex and gender throughout the research spectrum and beyond. The course focuses on key health conditions on which sex and gender have an impact, including immunology (available now), cardiovascular disease (coming soon), and pulmonary disease (coming soon).

Sex as a Biological Variable: A Primer [coming soon]

Sex as a biological variable (SABV) is a key focus of the NIH initiative to enhance reproducibility through rigor and transparency. NIH expects that SABV will be factored into research designs, analyses, and reporting in vertebrate animal and human studies. SABV: A Primer includes four interactive modules that will walk you through how to consider SABV in all stages of the biomedical research spectrum. This course was developed by ORWH and has funding support from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
