Women’s Health Research at Yale provides “seed” funding to full-time Yale investigators for innovative new research that will result in direct practical benefit for the health of women as part of our Pilot Project Program. Since its inception in 1998, WHRY has awarded more than $5 million in pilot grants to more than 80 investigators who have obtained more than $95 million in external grants to further their work.
To attain a future of better health and health care for women and men, we must secure and expand our commitment to developing science that serves the public. This requires tailoring medical care by gender to improve individual outcomes - attaining these goals is what will be increasingly expected as a national and international priority in the years ahead.
