Women’s Brain Project Special Webinar
March 13 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am EDT
The Women’s Brain Project (WBP), as the world experts in the field of sex (biological) and gender (societal) determinants of brain and mental health to achieve precision medicine and care, commissioned Economist Impact to examine the beneficial economic rationale for investing in sex and gender specific brain research.
Tackling brain diseases is not just a health problem, but also an economic one – including direct and indirect costs, loss of productivity and quality of life. In this context, sex- and gender-specific outcomes from biomedical research may influence productivity, as well as national economic outcomes, both directly and indirectly. However, until now the impact of sex/gender in research and the economy has been neglected. It is therefore crucial to examine the economic impact of investing in sex and gender differentiated brain research.
This webinar will focus on the launch of our White Paper commissioned to Economist Impact on ‘Sex, gender and the brain: Towards an inclusive Research Agenda.’ We invite you all to join us to discuss, ask questions, and learn more on Monday 13th March, 15:30-16:30 CET.
Monday 13th March also marks the start of Brain Awareness Week.
Sign up now and look forward to learning from our co-founder and CEO, Dr Antonella Santuccione Chadha, our co-founder and CSO, Dr Maria Teresa Ferretti, our Head of Policy & Advocacy, Anna Dé, and many other experts.
