The aim of this program is to catalyze growth of women’s reproductive health research in a uniquely fertile environment. WRHR at Stanford is synergistic with several Stanford School of Medicine programs focused on innovation in precision medicine, global health, gender equity, and sexual and gender medicine. Our cadre of WRHR Scholars will be well poised to improve the reproductive health of women over the lifespan.
We have an excellent pipeline of diverse Scholar candidates and comprehensive collateral resources. Two WRHR Scholars will be supported each year of the 5-year program. Duration of support for each Scholar will average 2-3 years, thereby providing training for 4 Scholars.
Scholars will be nationally recruited to pursue one of seven Research Focus Areas in which Stanford demonstrates exceptional strength and breadth: 1) Maternal-Child Health & Epidemiology, 2) REI & Stem Cell Biology, 3) Gynecologic Health Across the Lifespan, 4) Gynecologic Oncology, 5) Perinatal Biology, 6) LGBTQ+ Health, and 7) Innovative Technology & Precision Health. Scholars will develop essential skills and a portfolio of research projects to propel their transition to independence.
