NIH’s Office of Research on Women’s Health will host the virtual 5th annual NIH Vivian W. Pinn Symposium, “Integrating Sex and Gender into Biomedical Research as a Path for Better Science and Innovation,” on May 11–12. Held each year during National Women’s Health Week (May 9–15, 2021), the symposium honors the first full-time director of ORWH. 

Attendees of this year’s symposium will explore specific strategies for creating bridges and capacity across the scientific enterprise to build a broad-based network of government, nonprofit, academic and business organizations; integrating sex and gender considerations into the research enterprise; and applying a multidimensional perspective to women’s health to advance the integration of sex and gender considerations via transdisciplinary approaches and partnerships.
