Chair: CIHR Sex and Gender Science Chair

The field of sex and gender science aims to deepen our understanding of how biological and social influences interact to affect health and disease. This emerging field is moving the needle from observational differences in disease and response to treatment towards elucidating the underlying mechanisms and environmental and social factors that cause them. Ultimately, the goal of sex and gender science is to advance the development of personalized treatments, interventions, policies and programs that respond to the unique needs of all individuals — across sex, gender and other intersecting identity factors.
