Description: Personalized medicine provides the promise of improved healthcare informed by research on the factors that makes each human unique. Sex and gender are basic variables used to categorize differences and similarities; these variables influence health, including the experience, treatment, and outcomes of disease. The integration of sex and gender in the design and analysis of basic and clinical research studies can enhance the rigor of investigative approaches, improve the quality of the science, and expand the applicability of the results, supporting a personalized medicine approach that can transform public health.

This session will cover aspects of sex and gender factors in health and disease, from the development of biomedical devices and therapeutics to the personalization of treatment of cardiovascular disease. Discussion of the latest scientific advances in sex differences research and enhancements in study design to detect sex and gender differences will engage and inform the NIH scientific community.
