FWW Research Awards target early funding for small, short-term studies with promise for improving medical knowledge in women’s health with particular emphasis on cardiovascular disease, top female cancers, the role of hormones in disease and stage-of-life health issues such as pregnancy and menopause and topics disproportionately affecting women. This may include disease prevention and/or treatment; identifying gender differences; and/or improving quality of life concerns.
