Brigham and Women's Hospital is the home site for a Harvard-wide, NIH funded Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) award, entitled "Hormones and Genes in Women's Health: From Bench to Bedside." This K12 training grant supports scholars involved in investigating the role of hormones and genes in understanding sex differences in vulnerabilities to clinical disorders and those disorders specific to women. Socio-environmental factors modulating the impact of hormones and genes in understanding these sex-specific vulnerabilities may also be investigated. Scholars will be sponsored for up to five years of mentored research from Harvard faculty in basic, translational, or clinical aspects of women's health, and will combine, if applicable, clinical work in the scholar's specialty.
