COVID-19: Sex Differences

Women's Global Health Institute

The health of women and girls is of particular concern as a result of gender-related biological differences, socioeconomic status, and disparities in research involving women participants. At Purdue University, we deliver solutions through research and training that address these challenges, both nationally and internationally, through our work at the Women’s Global Health Institute (WGHI). The institute combines strong technology, engineering, natural and social sciences, and is a hub for interdisciplinary research. 

The institute aspires to deliver meaningful solutions to the challenges in women’s health by securing partnerships and support for research and training from government, private foundations, and corporate companies. 

Our Women's Health Research Grant Program supports outstanding researchers in women's health. Here are the recent awardees.
