Women’s Health Research at Yale is an interdisciplinary research program that was established in 1998 to respond to the need for scientific information on women’s health and on sex specific factors determining health and disease. Although the focus of Women’s Health Research is on women’s health, the program generates scientific investigations that broaden the scope of knowledge on human health overall.
