Medical research is the study of how our bodies work and how diseases and conditions affect our health and well-being. Women's Health Research at Yale supports promising studies that propose new approaches to understanding sex and gender differences among women and men. And, we’re finding sex and gender differences that matter.
We're uncovering and understanding differences in cardiovascular disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases, depression, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, addiction, and more. WHRY leads the way in conducting and spurring research that continues to demonstrate how women and men have different risk factors for diseases, how responses to a given treatment can differ by sex and gender, and how prevention strategies need to be sex-and gender-specific.
We don’t know what we don’t study. What we do know is that together, we can improve the lives of both women and men.
