The Trainee Research Presentation (TRP) Series feature short, blitz-style presentations by trainees about their undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral research projects. The event is an excellent opportunity to learn about what trainees are working on, join an engaging discussion about women’s health research, and network with peers. Everyone is welcome!
We highly encourage trainees conducting women's health and/or sex differences research to share their work in this low-pressure, friendly environment. This year, we will be organizing TRP sessions according to our research themes: Discovery, Applied and Gender, Society, and Health. Read more about our research themes below to figure out which theme your work falls under.
The WHRC's goal of achieving sex/gender health equity is pursued across three comprehensive and multidisciplinary research themes. Sex and Gender Based Analysis serves as the foundation of each theme—enabling us to unlock sex and gender discoveries that will advance our understanding of women’s health.
Discovery – how biological and genetic mechanisms impact health.
Gender, Society, and Health – how social, economic, cultural and gendered variables impact health.
Applied – what therapies and treatments will improve women’s health.
Present your Research:
Presentations for each theme will take place during the following months:
- Discovery: September 2023
- All themes: December 2023
- Gender, Society, and Health (GSH): March 2024
- Applied: June 2024
We invite all trainees conducting women's health and/or sex differences research to apply to give a talk and submit a general talk summary or abstract of their work (250 words max). Final presentations may deviate from the initial summary provided, so long as the research still addresses women's health and/or sex differences. Five trainees will be invited to speak during each session. The specific date and time of each presentation will be determined based on the speakers availability.
Interested in presenting? Please submit an abstract or short summary of your work here.
Abstract and summary submissions will be accepted until June 30th.
