Will Long COVID Research Provide Answers for Poorly Understood Diseases Like ME/CFS?
ME/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome) is a highly disabling, severe condition that has been largely overlooked and even questioned as an illness by physicians and biomedical researchers for decades. But now, scientists including Yale's Akiko Iwasaki and Harlan Krumholz are finding parallels between post-infection long COVID and ME/CFS.

Building Momentum: WHRY's Undergraduate Fellows Advance Women's Health
Women’s Health Research at Yale mentors undergraduate students as well as graduate students and rising junior faculty members to ensure that the next generation of scientists and medical providers fully account for the health needs of women and sex-and-gender differences affecting health. Here are a few examples of what our former undergraduate fellows are up to now.
Sex Differences in Gastrointestinal Cancer
With this year's Wendy U. and Thomas C. Naratil Pioneer Award and co-funding from the Yale Cancer Center, Dr. Pamela Kunz is conducting one of the first studies to examine sex differences in treating neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs), a rare form of cancer often found in the gastrointestinal tract.
