National Conference on Women's Health Research - Sex Differences Across the Lifespan: A Focus on Metabolism

A Focus on Metabolism​

The Center for Women's Health Research (CWHR) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus 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. Through research that addresses sex differences we will make breakthroughs to improve the health of both women and men.

In partnership with the Society for Women's Health Research, we are hosting a National Conference on Women’s Health Research entitled “Sex Differences Across the Lifespan: A Focus on Metabolism”. We 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 key note 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. We will showcase the talents of the CWHR's junior scientists who are being invited to present their work in dynamic 5-minute updates. This small meeting format will further the CWHR's mission of mentorship and collaboration across career generations.
