FWW Research Awards target early funding for small, short-term studies with promise for improving medical knowledge in cardiovascular disease, leading female cancers, the role of hormones in disease and stage-of-life health issues such as pregnancy and menopause and diseases disproportionately affecting women. 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 directions in its field.
2019 applications are currently under review. Applicants will be notified via e-mail by December 15, 2019. Next year’s application will post during the first quarter of 2020.
