In partnership with the Society for Women’s Health Research, the Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is hosting a National Conference on Women’s Health Research entitled “Sex Differences Across the Lifespan: A Focus on Metabolism” from September 28 to 30.
This conference will convene some of the best minds in sex-difference research to share knowledge and ideas, while setting the stage for the next pivotal scientific research in cardiometabolic risk across the lifespan. A collaborative, productive environment will be fostered through interactive sessions, poster presentations, focus groups, and keynote speakers. Conference attendees will have strong opportunities for networking, exchanging new ideas, and creating plans for collaborative, interdisciplinary research to tackle unaddressed questions in sex-difference research.
In addition to updates from senior scientists, there will be a national call for abstracts for poster presentations. The conference will showcase the talents of the CWHR’s junior scientists who are being invited to present their work in dynamic five-minute updates. This small meeting format will further the CWHR’s mission of mentorship and collaboration across career generations.
CWHR is focused on research to prevent, treat, and cure cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in women, as well mentoring the next generation of scientists in women’s health and educating the public. The hope is that via research that addresses sex differences, future breakthroughs to improve the health of both women and men will occur.
