One of the
missions of the Office of Women in Medicine and Science (OWIMS) is to develop
and implement programs to promote women’s health and sex differences
research. Women’s Health Research Day is
one of the ways we achieve this mission, by showcasing the achievements of
investigators in the topic area. This year, we seek to stimulate
integrative discussion and cross-disciplinary collaboration to promote
translational research in women’s health as it relates to pain and addiction.
