The first NOSI, Administrative Supplements for Research on the Health of Women of Understudied, Underrepresented, and Underreported (U3) Populations (NOT-OD-20-048), announces ORWH support of biomedical research highlighting health disparities among women of U3 populations. The proposed research must address at least one objective from strategic goal 1, 2, or 3 of The Trans-NIH Strategic Plan for Women's Health Research.

The second NOSI, Administrative Supplements for Research on Sex/Gender Influences (NOT-OD-20-049), announces ORWH support of research highlighting the impact of sex and gender influences in human health and illness. Having continuous interaction between sex and gender, human health is determined by both biology and expression of gender. The most robust experimental designs include consideration of both sex and gender. Therefore, applications proposing to investigate the influences of both sex and gender are highly encouraged. The proposed research must address at least one objective from the five strategic goals of The Trans-NIH Strategic Plan for Women's Health Research. The due date for applications is January 31, 2020. Applications for 2021 will be due January 25, 2021. More information is available here.
