Woman on a laptop with the word E-Learning written on itORWH recently released a series of supplemental videos for “Sex as a Biological Variable: A Primer.” This e-learning course gives users a thorough and up-to-date understanding of NIH requirements for factoring sex as a biological variable (SABV) into research designs. Users will be able to apply this knowledge when designing studies, conducting research, and interpreting evidence. The videos introduce SABV and NIH’s SABV policy, summarize the e-learning course and its four modules, and share insights on SABV and sex differences research from principal investigators in the Specialized Centers of Research Excellence (SCORE) on Sex Differences program. ORWH has also developed two other e-learning courses: “Bench to Bedside: Integrating Sex and Gender to Improve Human Health” and “Introduction: Sex- and Gender-Related Differences in Health.” All of the courses and videos are available at no cost to the public.
