Women’s Health Research at Yale is changing the landscape of medical research and practice. Our center's focus is to ensure the study of women and health differences between women and men.
Historically, women have been underrepresented or excluded from medical research, creating a gap in knowledge. We pioneer the effort to narrow this gap in knowledge through our key initiatives.
We work with Yale faculty to launch studies, generate data, and propel larger investigations with practical health benefit. We build partnerships that bridge disciplines to answer complex questions. Our center partners with the community and medical professionals to communicate health information. We assert a national voice to inform public policy. And, by training the next generation of researchers to study the influence of sex and gender, we are shaping the future of women's health.
