Research Programs, Findings, and Opportunities

Research at WHRY

Women's Health Research at Yale funds and initiates new laboratory, clinical, and interdisciplinary research on women's health and gender differences. Funded studies have revealed gender differences in smoking cessation, heart bypass surgery recovery time, and occupational injuries. Funding is available for full-time Yale investigators who are pioneering innovative new research that will result in direct practical benefit for the health of women.

Our initial Pilot Project Program, The Ethel F. Donaghue Women's Health Investigator Program at Yale, was made possible through the generous support of The Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation.
