About Women's Health Research at Yale

Women’s Health Research at Yale is changing the landscape of medical research and practice by ensuring the study of women and examining health differences between women and men to improve the lives of everyone.

In 1998, Dr. Carolyn M. Mazure founded Women’s Health Research at Yale, a self-supporting interdisciplinary research center within Yale School of Medicine, to initiate never-before-undertaken studies that respond to the dramatic need for scientific information on women’s health and on gender-specific factors determining health and disease. 

Now heading into its third decade, WHRY continues to have a high impact in research development and outcomes as well as successful communication of health information with the community.
