ORWH is offering two Science Policy Scholar Travel Awards to support the development of junior investigators focused on women’s health or sex and gender differences who are also interested in research policy. The awards provide up to $3,000 each to defray the costs of attending the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences’ annual meeting on May 4-7 in Marina del Rey, Calif. 

“Sex Differences Across the Lifespan” is the theme of OSSD 2020. Meeting organizers are now accepting proposals for individual presentations, group symposia and poster sessions on all areas of sex and gender differences research including basic biology, translational science and clinical research. ORWH director Dr. Janine Clayton will deliver the keynote lecture. 

Applications for the travel awards are due Feb. 3 and ORWH will notify award recipients on Mar. 13. Eligibility requirements and instructions for applying for the travel awards are available from ORWH.
