Research Award – Priorities

FWW targets early funding for small, short-term research in cardiovascular disease, top female cancers, hormones role in disease and/or stage-of-life health concerns like pregnancy and menopause and diseases disproportionately affecting women. This may include disease prevention or treatment; clarification of gender differences; and/or address quality of life concerns.

We favor research proposals that have direct clinical application in preventing and/or treating disease; studies with the promise of yielding results that will attract larger sources of funding for advancing study; and influencing long-term research and clinical care directions. FWW favors focused, quality study design.
