NIH Supports Women in Biomedical Careers

A major part of the mandate of the NIH Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH), part of the NIH Office of the Director, is to develop opportunities and programs to support recruitment, retention, re-entry and advancement of girls and women in biomedical careers. As part of this effort, NIH has launched a Women in Biomedical Careers Web site at The site offers information on the NIH Working Group on Women in Biomedical Careers as well as updates on workshops, news, resources and funding opportunities pertaining to women in biomedical fields. Site visitors can also sign up for the NIH Updates on Women in Science LISTSERV to receive regular updates.
