Our Research

Join us in discovery

Advancing healthcare depends upon new data derived from scientific research. Improving research requires studying the health of women as well as health differences between and among women and men.

Women’s Health Research at Yale initiates studies that ensure this focus and consider the intersection of biological and social determinants of health. Our studies cover topics ranging from cardiovascular disease to cancers, Alzheimer’s Disease to addiction, and more.

The investment made in these pilot projects has resulted in invaluable health information and the necessary feasibility data for new external grants. The return on investment in the form of external grant dollars is nearly 20-fold, and these new funds go directly into our investigators’ laboratories and research settings so they can continue their work.

Impact of Pilot Project Program Studies

Women's Health Research at Yale funds research studies on topics related to the health of women and the sex differences that influence health. These studies generate data that lead to external grants and greater understanding of health conditions and disease.
