Interdisciplinary Collaborations

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.

Women's Health Research at Yale allowed us to combine our interests to find new treatments for ovarian cancer.

  • WHRY has partnered with Elevate, Yale’s new policy lab, to generate the science necessary to break the cycle of poverty through effective mental health interventions for mothers and families.

  • WHRY collaborated with Dr. Hilary Blumberg to provide strategies that optimize sleep and promote healthy aging in women. Adapting an existing therapy known as SLEEP-SMART (Sleep Self-Monitoring And Regulation Therapy), Dr. Blumberg’s team is determining if the intervention can improve cognitive and emotional health and reduce brain and blood biomarkers that indicate elevated risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) that predominantly affect women.
  • This core investigates how addictions have different effects on women and men. The goal is to improve prevention, treatment, and public health policies related to addiction.
