Succesful symposium on sex and gender5 years ago
The symposium ‘Sex and Gender in Biomedical and Translational Research’ was held on 19 February 2016. In this symposium, the need was stressed to make well-grounded choices for the variables of sex and gender (tissue, animals and humans) in biomedical and translational research.
The symposium was well attended and the presentations were very much appreciated. The main lecturer, Prof. Londa Schiebinger of Stanford University, is also director of the project ‘Gendered Innovations in Science, Health & Medicine, Engineering, and Environment’.
