It is imperative to consider sex and gender when conducting inclusive research, building unbiased technology and facilitating equitable healthcare. Research that implements sex- and gender-based analysis plus (SGBA+) has found important differences in many areas that pertain to neuroscience, including disease risk and effective treatments. Implementation of SGBA+ into your research is often required by funding agencies and will also lead to important discoveries and pathways for precision medicine.
Join the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, the UBC Women’s Health Research Cluster and the Graduate Program in Neuroscience for this free workshop on how to implement SGBA+ into your own research. It is intended for both faculty and trainees and will be led by Dr. Liisa Galea and Krystle van Hoof. This workshop includes talks by Dr. Galea and van Hoof, as well as breakout rooms which will provide the opportunity for small group discussions, where participants can talk about their own experiences of implementing SGBA+ and share questions and ideas about integrating this into their future research.
