BIH Excellence Award for Sex and Gender Aspects in Health Research 2021
The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) announces the “BIH Excellence Award for Sex and Gender Aspects in Health Research”. Sex- and gender-based studies and analyses are crucial to expand our knowledge and understanding of health and disease and enhance the scientific quality of the results.
The award aims to promote sex and gender issues in translational research and increase visibility for these topics. It recognizes research excellence among scientists working in the field of biomedicine, who can show how accounting for sex and gender in translational research improves their research project and make the outcomes and results more useful. With the award, BIH funds two projects in the field of translational research that generate benefit through a special focus on sex and gender aspects within the research project.
The prize is awarded for a joint research project of the applicant with cooperation partners at BIH. We expect a research project within the field of translational medicine, in which sex and gender aspects are considered carefully throughout the research project, e.g. derivation of the research question, choice of study design and setting as well as the analysis and for the interpretation of the results.
