A collaboration among the Bloomberg School of Public Health,
the School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing.
The Johns Hopkins Specialized Center for Research Excellence (SCORE) in Sex and Age Differences in Immunity to Influenza (SADII), in collaboration with the Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine have Announcing a call for a seed grant of $40,000 to enable faculty to conduct research using a variety of methods related to how women’s health, sex differences, or gender differences impact COVID-19 outcomes. Areas of research must broadly involve COVID-19. This could inlcude projects analyzing the impact of COVID-19 on women’s reproductive health disparities and access to care, as well as analyzing the impact of sex (i.e., biological distinction between males and females), gender (i.e., social and cultural norms that define men and women or boys and girls), or the intersection of sex and gender on primary and/or secondary effects of COVID-19.

The Women’s Health Research Group began as an interdisciplinary group of faculty from the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing who sought to promote collaborative research on women’s health and gender differences in health across the three institutions.
Launched in 2008, we host networking sessions throughout the academic year that are open to faculty and trainees at all levels, and an annual symposium that highlights new research from junior faculty and trainees.To be added to the WHRG email list, click here
