Date and time
Tuesday, 7 February 2023
Please contact organiser for details
In this exciting, timely workshop, Prof. Oertelt-Prigione will break down the many layers of sex and gender and their impact on biomedical research: from disaggregating drug trial results between men and women to the influence of researchers’ sex/gender on experimental outcomes. She will guide researchers through the important questions to ask when setting up biomedical research: what you should consider, how to start, what should be measured during the experiments, and what should be reported in the resulting publication. With several concrete examples from a variety of fields, this webinar will serve as an illuminating and practical source of information for all researchers working with humans and animals.
