Research Awards

FWW Research Awards target small, short-term studies with great promise for improving medical knowledge in leading women’s health concerns — cardiovascular disease, top female cancers, and the role of hormones in disease and stage-of-life health issues such as pregnancy and menopause. FWW supports exceptional physician-scientists early in their career when funding sources are scarce but innovative ideas are abundant. FWW supports studies that seek to improve understanding gender differences; disease prevention and treatment; and improving quality of life health concerns that often arise for women during stage-of-life health changes such as during pregnancy and menopause.
