One of the fundamental variables in preclinical biomedical research is sex: whether a cell, tissue, or animal is female or male. Biological sex is an important consideration for this research that underlies drug development, clinical trials, and prevention approaches. Learn how to incorporate sex to strengthen scientific design from leaders in the field at an upcoming full-day meeting hosted by the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health. The event will also be available for viewing via videocast. For the most updated information and to view a draft agenda, please visit:http://orwh.od.nih.gov/news/scientificseminars.asp.
