Connecting faculty across fields
WHRY’s research partnerships bring together Yale faculty from different fields. These collaborations answer real-world health questions. To answer these questions, WHRY needs such diversity to draw on the latest knowledge and techniques. Which helps improve gender-specific prevention and treatment for diseases and conditions most affecting women.
Since 1998, WHRY's collaborations have led to a growing number of researchers at Yale and other institutions studying women and sex and gender differences.
