Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI) and Brain Canada have joined forces to launch the first ever Brain Canada-WBHI Expansion Grants: Considering Sex and Gender Program, a new initiative to support the implementation or continuation of sex and gender considerations for research. Many disorders associated with brain aging inexplicably affect women, and there has been a lack of research to understand why. Taking sex (biological factors) and gender (social influences) into account is necessary for equality in health and precision medicine.
Eligible projects include those that (1) have been previously funded by Brain Canada or WBHI, (2) have a grant end date in 2019 or later and (3) focus on aging, neurodegeneration or stroke.
