This workshop is aimed at PHDs, Postdocs and Clinicians.

On September 27, 2017 the BIH offers a workshop on sex and gender sensitive research design. It will take place at the Charité Mitte from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm.

Workshop contents:

Sex and gender differences in research have obtained an increasing amount of attention since the largest national funding agencies in the EU and the US have decided to include this consideration as a criterion for granting funds. They clearly state that the inclusion of sex and gender in research is a quality criterion for good practice and a lack of its inclusion will likely reduce the validity of your research. Sex and gender do matter!

Do you want to know what the buzz is all about? Do you want to learn how to integrate sex and gender sensitive research in your project? Do you plan to submit a grant within the European research framework Horizon 2020 or with NIH and want to know what you need to do to comply and increase your chances of becoming a successful grantee?

In this seminar we will discuss if and how sex and gender matter in basic science, how to adequately consider them when planning your research, and work on practical examples using your research project as starting point. When leaving the seminar you should be able to answer questions like these: Does it suffice to say how many female and male cells or animals you included in your experiments? Do you need to consider influencing factors for sex and gender and what are they? Does intersectionality make your research more valuable or just more complicated and expensive?

There are some free spots left. Please register by August 28, 2017 at
