SWHR ISIS Poster Accepted

Washington, DC (February 28, 2011) — The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) is pleased to announce the acceptance of a poster to be presented at the Second Annual International Science of Team Science (SciTS) Conference. The title of the poster is “The SWHR ISIS Networks: A Collaborative Model for Conducting Sex-based Research”.

The SWHR Interdisciplinary Studies in Sex-differences (ISIS) Networks address cross-cutting research questions in sex-based biology. Since 2002, we have convened and funded five successful networks focusing on sex differences in the brain, musculoskeletal health, metabolism, coronary vascular disease and breast cancer. The poster will describe SWHR’s experience, the model used, the guidelines, and several of the products that have emerged from the network collaborations.

Lead author, Christine L. Carter, Ph.D., M.P.H., who recently joined SWHR as Vice President, Scientific Affairs, says “I am delighted to have this opportunity to showcase the unique features of this interdisciplinary research network model which focuses exclusively on sex-differences in health and disease”.

Sponsored by the Research Team Support & Development (RTS&D) of the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences (NUCATS) Institute, the SciTS Conference is a forum to enhance understanding of how best to engage in team science to meet society’s needs. The poster session offers an opportunity for conference attendees to present findings as they relate to the field of team science.

The conference will be held April 11-14 in Chicago at Northwestern University.
