The UNC Center for Women’s Health Research has received a notice of award for the UNC Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) Career Development Program, an NIH K12 grant. The proposal was submitted through the Center last November by Ben Chi, MD, MSc, with assistance from Kim Boggess, MD. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Chair, Genevieve Neal-Perry, MD, PhD, will serve as PI.
There are 15 WRHR sites in OB/GYN departments throughout the nation. The primary goal of these sites is to provide OB/GYN junior faculty with state-of-the-art training in women’s reproductive health research in an academic setting, and to increase the research capacity of clinically trained OB/GYNs. WRHR scholars represent a diverse group of physician-scientists from several subspecialties and emerging areas in OB/GYN who pursue a broad range of basic science, translational, and/or clinical research topics. Learn more about the WRHR Program.
From the proposal:
Aim 1: To catalyze the early career development of promising Ob-Gyn clinician investigators in women’s reproductive health research through mentorship, collaboration, and tailored skills building
Aim 2: To enhance engagement of Ob-Gyn researchers in multidisciplinary, team-based science within and outside of the UNC Department of Ob-Gyn
Aim 3: To advance women’s reproductive health through the design, conduct, and dissemination of cutting-edge research, in areas aligned with NIH scientific priorities
