5th Annual Vivian Pinn Symposium

5th Annual Vivian Pinn Symposium:
Integrating Sex and Gender into Biomedical Research as a Path for Better Science and Innovation

The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) is thrilled to host the 5th Annual Vivian Pinn Symposium in partnership with the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH). In line with ORWH’s mission of putting science to work for the health of women, this event serves as a forum for experts across sectors to communicate and collaborate for the advancement of women’s health.

This year’s event will focus on illustrating the scientific, societal, and economic opportunities of integrating sex and gender into biomedical research and the power of working together. Sex-and gender-aware research is critical for rigorous science, maximizing returns on research investment, and advancing women’s health. However, despite progress made, consideration of sex and gender influences is inconsistently applied across the biomedical ecosystem, highlighting a need for greater integration.

This event will feature a series of panels and breakout sessions with experts from across diverse sectors of academia, industry, non-profits, private funding, and government to generate discussion of system-wide solutions—driving progress towards a healthier future for everyone.

Symposium Goals:

1) Create bridges and capacity to work bi-directionally across silos within the scientific enterprise to build a resilient, interconnected network that includes federal and private funders of research, industry and business, journal editors and publishers, professional societies, scientific and health organizations, healthcare providers, researchers, academic institutions, policymakers, and the public.

2) Develop strategies to achieve the integration of sex and gender considerations throughout the biomedical research enterprise.

3) Characterize issues related to the health of women and explore women’s health research, along with public health opportunities from a multidimensional perspective to advance the integration of sex and gender considerations via trans-sector approaches and partnerships.
